Could I Have Ovarian Cancer?

Postby Wybert » Wed Aug 30, 2017 4:20 pm

My periods are very irregular. I have only had light spotting this entire year. My lower back recently started hurting and I gained like 30 pounds out of nowhere. Help!

Could I Have Ovarian Cancer?

Postby Elkin » Wed Aug 30, 2017 4:24 pm

Ovarian cancer is very rare in young women. It rarely shows symptoms until the more advanced stages. If you are concerned, just check with your gynecologist on your next visit. At 18, your hormones are all out of whack-- which can cause irregular periods and weight gain. Stress is also a factor with those things as well. If you are really concerned, visit your doctor because it could be something else like a thyroid condition (I know those are associated with the symptoms you are having). But try not to worry, because chances are it's just stress & hormones that come with being 18 :)
