Grab a cup ‘o Joe & share what’s on your mind for an hour on this WEDNESDAY, JUNE 4.

Every woman’s health is reflected in her beauty, her vigor and energy to do a ton of things for the family, friends, and community. As a woman, I am always looking for and exploring different approaches how to make my life more powerful. Power comes from knowing facts about different things. Knowledge is Power.

Today, let’s add one more powerful pieces of knowledge and make it a reminder to ourselves about a very sensitive subject – ovarian cancer.

Let’s feel empowered, rather than being scared. Let’s pay attention to small details when our bodies call out for it.

By knowing and giving it all to our bodies, we sure would be the best leaders and heroes for ourselves. And our families and friends would thank us for that by supplying their love and… more laundry to do. But that’s nothing when we feel empowered with knowledge to save our lives.

    What is Ovarian Cancer?
    Current research suggests this cancer begins in the fallopian tubes and moves to the ovaries, the twin organs that produce a woman’s eggs and the main source of the female hormones estrogen and progesterone. Treatments for ovarian cancer have become more effective in recent years, with the best results seen when the disease is found early.

    Ovarian Cancer Symptoms

    – Bloating or pressure in the belly
    – Pain in the abdomen or pelvis
    – Feeling full too quickly during meals
    – Urinating more frequently

    These symptoms can be caused by many conditions that are not cancer. If they occur persistently for more than a few weeks, report them to your health care professional.

    OVARIAN CANCER RISK FACTORS
    per WebMD

    Risk Factor: Family History

    A woman’s odds of developing ovarian cancer are higher if a close relative has had cancer of the ovaries, breast, or colon. Researchers believe that inherited genetic changes account for 10% of ovarian cancers. This includes the BRCA1 and BRCA2 gene mutations, which are linked to breast cancer. Women with a strong family history should talk with a doctor to see whether closer medical follow-up could be helpful.

    Risk Factor: Age

    The strongest risk factor for ovarian cancer is age. It’s most likely to develop after a woman goes through menopause. Using postmenopausal hormone therapy may increase the risk. The link seems strongest in women who take estrogen without progesterone for at least 5 to 10 years. Doctors are not certain whether taking a combination of estrogen and progesterone boosts the risk as well.

    Risk Factor: Obesity

    Obese women have a higher risk of getting ovarian cancer than other women. And the death rates for ovarian cancer are higher for obese women too, compared with non-obese women. The heaviest women appear to have the greatest risk.

    • Jennifer Hiles says:

      It’s interesting how obesity/diet is a risk factor in almost every health issue I learn about. I’m not familiar with postmenopausal hormone therapy? Is this something to reduce the side effects of menopause? I’ve heard there is a test you can get to see if you have the BRCA1 and BRCA2 gene mutations but that it isn’t 100% reliable.

      • Karen Hinkle says:

        I guess its great that I am doing my dieting now all the great information I get from the chats is awesome and great support here but I can see being over weight has so many health risks its not worth it to be over weight and that is why it is important to know your family history to

        • Jennifer Hiles says:

          I agree Karen, joining these conversations is a daily reminder of eating better, exercising, skin care, foot care, etc. I learn something new everyday!

      • CoffeeTime says:

        Jennifer,
        Post menopausal women gotta be physically active –> exercise + have a diet that is rich in some crucial elements like DHA, Magnesium, phytonutrients and more to create a balanced environment within the body to shift into a new dwelling in our lives.
        If you do it consistently, your body would thank you by rewarding you with energetic life.

    • Donna K says:

      It is good to know your risk factors.

    • My mom had the DNA test done recently to see about breast and ovarian cancer because we have a lot of cancer in our familu and she had just gone through having a biopsy on a lump she found on her breast..luckly the DNA test and the biopsy came back good

    • thia Beniash says:

      i had the brca testing done and was very happy to see no gene mutation

      • Jennifer Hiles says:

        @thia I would be interested in having this test. What is involved? Does insurance cover it?

    • Amanda Alvarado says:

      I never would have though obese women have a higher risk! Even more of a motivation to lose weight for those who are obese!

    • Jessica Parent says:

      I had no idea obesity upped your risk for ovarian cancer although it makes sense (I thought this specific type of cancer was mostly genetic)

    • The doctors told me that it you start menopause before 50 , they want you to take hormones until at least 50.

    • Rebecca Swenor says:

      My dads aunt had breast cancer with both bras removed and my grandma on my moms side had a cyst the size of a large grapefruit removed. The cyst was in one of her ovaries. I had a cyst on my right ovary that had burst and I had gotten so sick from it. This was years ago after my last baby.

    • Virginia Rogers says:

      Scary am heading towards all of these doctor thinks am starting menopause as well as rest.

    • Carol Yemola says:

      Obesity seems to be linked with lots of health issues. I was surprised to learn it was linked with ovarian cancer.

    • Katrina A. says:

      I’m lucky it’s not in my families history and have a way to go until menopause. But I do need to get my weight under control for this reason and just my overall health.

    Ovarian Cancer Screening Tests
    per WebMD

    There is no easy or reliable way to test for ovarian cancer if a woman has no symptoms. However, there are two ways to screen for ovarian cancer during a routine gynecologic exam. One is a blood test for elevated levels of a protein called CA-125. The other is an ultrasound of the ovaries. Unfortunately, neither technique has been shown to save lives when used in women of average risk. For this reason, screening is only recommended for women with strong risk factors.

    Stages of Ovarian Cancer

    The initial surgery for ovarian cancer also helps determine how far the cancer has spread, described by the following stages:

    Stage I: Confined to one or both ovaries
    Stage II: Spread to the uterus or other nearby organs
    Stage III: Spread to the lymph nodes or abdominal lining
    Stage IV: Spread to distant organs, such as the lungs or liver

    woman issues

    • Karen Hinkle says:

      cancer that’s such a powerful word and it is such a bad thing lost my mom to lung cancer 23 yrs ago she was only 49

      • CoffeeTime says:

        Karen,
        I agree with you that “cancer” is a strong word. But it gets this way only when we give it our power.
        We gotta be mindful when saying it the way we do.
        We are in control how much power we give to anything or anybody.
        To be equipped with Facts, Knowledge gives us more power.

        NO, “cancer” word is just a word. And we need to bring to the surface real facts about it: prevention, risks, treatment. When we know more, the word shrinks.

      • I lost my aunt about 16 years ago to her second battle with lung cancer, it spread to the brain and several other places the second time. She had two young boys.

      • Yes its is Karen

      • Jennifer Hiles says:

        I’m so sorry to hear that Karen. I’ve lost a very good friend to it a few years ago.

    • Jennifer Hiles says:

      It sounds like it would be hard to catch ovarian cancer at the early stage? I don’t believe I have a family history of it which slightly reassuring. I wasn’t aware that they could screen for it with a blood test. I’ve never heard of CA-125 before. I’m learning a lot today

    • thia Beniash says:

      cancer is the devil. it takes so many people in so many ways. i have lost so many to it.

    • My uncles wife just finished treat for breast cancer . luckly they caught it at the earliest stage and she is cancer free as of a few weeks ago

      • Karen Hinkle says:

        I know it is up to use to do our routine Dr app to make sure we all can be safe and find it sooner rather then later

    • Amanda Alvarado says:

      YOu would think they would have better ways of identifying/diagnosis it in this day and age!

    • So frustrating, The doctors just want to do a pap and breast exam and them get you out of the office. I guess we need to find a doctor that will go the extra mile.

    • Rebecca Swenor says:

      It is a scary thought and that is why exams are so important. Also listening to your body is Vidal.

    • Jessica Parent says:

      cancer scares the bejeezus out of me…I lost both of my maternal grandparents to it relatively young (Gram had skin cancer twice,uterine once and many years later we lost her to brain cancer at 59 yrs old….pops had prostate cancer that spread and he passed at 68 yrs)

    • Virginia Rogers says:

      Thank goodness I always keep up regular exams.

    • Carol Yemola says:

      CA-125 is a tumor marker for ovarian cancer. There are other tumor markers for other cancers. For example, CA-27-29 for breast.

    • Katrina A. says:

      So scary. Cancer…any kind. Horrible killers. So many taken to soon.

    Ovarian Cancer Surgery
    per WebMD

    Surgery is used to diagnose ovarian cancer and determine its stage, but it is also the first phase of treatment. The goal is to remove as much of the cancer as possible. This may include a single ovary and nearby tissue in stage I. In more advanced stages, it may be necessary to remove both ovaries, along with the uterus and surrounding tissues.

    Chemotherapy

    In all stages of ovarian cancer, chemotherapy is usually given after surgery. This phase of treatment uses drugs to target and kill any remaining cancer in the body. The drugs may be given by mouth, through an IV, or directly into the belly (intraperitoneal chemotherapy). Women with LMP tumors usually don’t need chemo unless the tumors grow back after surgery.

    woman worrying

    • Karen Hinkle says:

      wow invasive procedure it scares me to much I always worry about it

    • Jennifer Hiles says:

      This is also so scary but can be such a reality for many people Just the words Cancer and Chemo frighten me. I remember sitting through a chemo session with a good friend of mine. It wasn’t what I thought. I remember them coming around with a box passing out wigs and my friend trying some on. One of them was blond and short which was the opposite of how Pat’s (my friend) hair was. We had a good laugh. It was a welcome and fun relief. She passed away several years ago. She was in stage 4 by the time they found it.

    • thia Beniash says:

      i had a cryosurgery, where they freeze ithe interior walls and hope the cells grow back healthy. thank goodness they did. my annual exam makes me so nervous. now they are “watching and area of concern” so i will have two tests a year instead of one.

    • My sister tested positve for HPV and they have found cancer causing cells. It worries my bc she has not been to the doctor in a while

      • Karen Hinkle says:

        my daughter at 17 had the HPV they got it early but they took a lot out and dint think she would have children she is 28 now and in 2 month my grandson will be born

      • Jennifer Hiles says:

        I think I read somewhere that 3 out of 4 people have HPV. Anyone else heard this statistic? It’s great that they now have a vaccine for it!

    • Amanda Alvarado says:

      Again it boggles my mind that there’s no other way to diagnosis it and treat it other than surgery!

    • Rebecca Swenor says:

      This is really scary and thanks for the important info.

    • So scary.

    • Jessica Parent says:

      Ive heard chemo can actually make cancer worse

      • Carol Yemola says:

        That is false! Can’t make it worse, but often you feel worse. Means the chemo is working. I am an oncology nurse so I know from experience.

        • CoffeeTime says:

          Carol,
          It’s so invaluable to have you here to speak from such vast experience and add the validity to the science!
          Thank you so much!

        • Rebecca Swenor says:

          I know your job is hard than just from being a volunteer in logistics at Marquette General Hospital years ago. I was only 16 and seen a lot of people go from cancer. It is a beautiful thing you do and we all appreciate your work Carol. 🙂

    • Virginia Rogers says:

      Is scary a few years back they removed all my moms insides as thought she had was very glad came back no cancer.

    • Carol Yemola says:

      It is important to keep with your chemo regime if you need it. You don’t know if any microscopic cells are floating around in your bloodsteam and can settle in another area of your body.

    • Katrina A. says:

      Such a tough thing to go through. Having a strong support team helps alot too.

    WHAT ARE SOME RISK REDUCERS FOR OVARIAN CANCER?
    per WebMD

    Risk Reducer: Pregnancy

    Women who have biological children are less likely to get ovarian cancer than women who have never given birth. The risk appears to decrease with every pregnancy, and breastfeeding may offer added protection.

    Risk Reducer: ‘The Pill’

    Ovarian cancer is also less common in women who have taken birth control pills. Women who have used the pill for at least five years have about half the risk of women who never took the pill. Like pregnancy, birth control pills prevent ovulation. Some researchers think ovulating less often may protect against ovarian cancer.

    womens issues

    • Karen Hinkle says:

      well that’s something good for us moms who have children I dint know this but I did know this about dogs that’s weird I know about the dogs but no me I did take birth control pills maybe 3 yrs but not all at a 3 yr period

    • Jennifer Hiles says:

      I find these risk reducers to be so strange. I’ve had one child and I have taken the pill for a long time. I guess that is a good thing. I had heard this information before but never learned the why. That’s interesting to hear that ovulating less could be helpful.

    • thia Beniash says:

      not good for me. done with pregnancy and the pill. now i just pray. pregnancy makes the cancerous cells shed and regenerate. hopefully they come back healthy

    • Strange. .but good to know..I have 4 kids( 3 pregnancies) and to the pill for several years off and on

    • Amanda Alvarado says:

      Well I had 3 babies and breastfed 2 (our 3rd was stillborn) but I’ve never taken the pill!

      • Jennifer Hiles says:

        I really wish I would have breast fed. I tried for about 3 or 4 weeks but just couldn’t get her to latch. I pumped for awhile. I wonder if pumping has the effects. I would imagine so.

    • Rebecca Swenor says:

      Wow I thought it was the opposite with the birth control. Good to know.

    • I breast feed for 4 years, hope it helps in the long run.

    • Jessica Parent says:

      Well I guess Ive got that covered having had so many babies 😉 I only spent about 2 yrs on the pill….but have had a slew of kids and nursed all of them (about 5yrs so far with at least another 1 oncoming)

    • Virginia Rogers says:

      interesting to know guess is good have had 2 child births and was also on birth control.

    • Carol Yemola says:

      I find it interesting that taking the birth control pill can lessen your chances of ovarian cancer. However, years ago they said it would increase your risk of breast cancer.

    • Katrina A. says:

      That;s so interesting woman who have given birth are less at risk.

    WHAT ARE SOME RISK REDUCERS FOR OVARIAN CANCER?
    per WebMD

    Risk Reducer: Tubal Ligation

    Getting your tubes tied, formally known as tubal ligation, may offer some protection against ovarian cancer. The same goes for having a hysterectomy — removing the uterus.

    Risk Reducer: Removing the Ovaries

    For women with genetic mutations that put them at high risk for ovarian cancer, removing the ovaries is an option. This can also be considered in women over 40 getting a hysterectomy.

    womens issues

    • Karen Hinkle says:

      I had my tubes tied in 1990 so I guess for me this is good news I hope

    • Jennifer Hiles says:

      I’m 34. I wish I had children earlier in life but it just didn’t work out that way. I had my first 3 years ago. I’m still on the pill. I’m afraid of the finality of having tubal ligation.

      • Me to jennifer. Even though I have 4 kids..3 girl and 1 boy. I just cant bring my self to do it..I think its because my mom had her tubes tied after 2 kids and them she meet my step dad when my lil sister was 1 and regretted having it done

        • Jennifer Hiles says:

          That’s what I’m afraid of! I want to give my daughter a sibling (she has a half sister from my husband but they are almost 10 years apart) but I fear having another one because of my age and my first pregnancy didn’t go well.

    • thia Beniash says:

      i did not know tubal ligation reduces the risk. i have been considering this and now i see another benefit. i am just afraid of the surgery itself.

      • Karen Hinkle says:

        I had my 3 child by age 22 had tubes tied and have never regretted it the surgery is nothing I was 19 when I had my first child who when born had a whole in her heart at age 1 she had open heart surgery now 28 and other 2 we complicated so that’s why I had it done so youn high risk pregnancy

    • Amanda Alvarado says:

      Mine aren’t tied…yet. If I am blessed with another baby, I will probably have to have it done since that would be my 3rd c-section and with my last one, my uterus had started to rupture.

    • Rebecca Swenor says:

      This maybe a good time to mention the NovaSure procedure. This is when they remove the lining of the uterus by burning it. For some women you stop having periods like myself and my sister but for other you have light periods. You also don’t get the sever cramping with this. It was a good for me because of the pulps and serve cramping as while as heavy bleeding when I had my period.

    • I had 2 C- section.

    • Jessica Parent says:

      Ive had neither yet

    • Virginia Rogers says:

      That is what they ended up doing on my mom am sure my day will come with our history.

    • Carol Yemola says:

      Well, removing the ovaries is certainly one sure way to prevent ovarian cancer. It is a bit extreme though, and can cause other issues.

    • Katrina A. says:

      Wow…getting your tubes ties reduces risk? I never would have thought that.

    YET ANOTHER HUGE RISK REDUCER FOR OVARIAN CANCER –>
    per WebMD

    Risk Reducer: Low-Fat Diet

    While there is no definitive diet to prevent ovarian cancer, there is evidence that what you eat can make a difference. In one recent study, women who stuck to a low-fat diet for at least four years were less likely to develop ovarian cancer. Some researchers report the cancer is also less common in women who eat a lot of vegetables, but more studies are needed.

    ovarian cancer risk reducer low fat diet

    • Karen Hinkle says:

      oh how I love my vegetables and eat them every day oh I am so happy I started my diet again that’s to you Laura

    • Jennifer Hiles says:

      From what I’ve seen and read for years, diet and exercise seem to be so important is so many health issues (which makes complete sense). I’m always so confused about diets though, low fat, low sugar, low carb, etc. All I know is that fruit and veggies are good for you and help reduce risks of many health issues!

    • thia Beniash says:

      diet. the dreaded word… lol. i try to choose healthy but then by the end of the day i must have chocolate or ice cream. i just have no self control for yummy stuff.

    • Amanda Alvarado says:

      Another reason to eat more veggies! Not sure about the low fat though…lots of mexican food and we all know that’s not low fat! LOL

    • I really need to eat more veggies..I am going to the farmer market soon to get some yummies

      • Karen Hinkle says:

        I am eating coldslaw as we speak good fermented food good for me

      • Jennifer Hiles says:

        @Constance, me too. I hear raw veggies are the best. We are growing some tomatoes, cucumbers, peppers and a few other veggies in the garden but they won’t be ready for several months.

        • I did get a garden out this year 🙁 thinking about putting some tomatoes and bell peppers in containers on the back patio so I can make my salsa

        • CoffeeTime says:

          Jennifer,
          Fermented foods are of Immense value to our bodies to fight cancers and overall inflammation.
          Fermented means that the content of the Initial food has been significantly changed.
          Usually, these foods are rich in protein and amino acids that contribute to lowering inflammation in our bodies and feeding it with the readily available nutrients for the cells to consume.
          The benefits are Multiple.
          If you don’t have a taste for any fermented foods –> Develop the Taste! Try them all, experiment and re-introduce these foods into you life again and again. Never give up. You’ll be missing out on a lot!

          • Jennifer Hiles says:

            That’s really helpful to know, thank you. I’m pretty sure those are lacking from my diet right now.

        • Karen Hinkle says:

          yes but when the veggies come in they will be so good and put some away for the winter I freeze all mine for winter even bell peppers you can and put them away for winter months when they go sky rocketing and put them in your mealks

    • Rebecca Swenor says:

      Did not know this is good to know. Thanks 🙂

    • I grow a lot of our food and can over 200 jars of food every year.

    • Virginia Rogers says:

      Amazing how much diet can do for so many things in our bodies 🙂

    • Jessica Parent says:

      I do have a low fat diet so I guess that’s a bonus

    • Carol Yemola says:

      A low fat diet is good for you in so many ways! Glad to know it prevents ovarian cancer as well.

    • Katrina A. says:

      Yet another reason to put my diet in check. I do love veggies. Just need to incorporate them better.

        Amanda,
        There’s a good Costco Brand for DHA that does not have any fishy smell. I myself do not like anything fishy smelling, but these supplements are of essence to us.

        I just eat some fish regularly 🙂 I don’t take most supplements (for the same reason Amanda doesn’t) I try and get the “real” thing cuz I lack trust in most of whats in todays market (foodwise,medicine and vitamins/supplements) Partly because of todays high cancer rates and partly because I don’t recognize nor can pronounce a lot of ingredients in them
