September is Ovarian Cancer Awareness Month

September is Ovarian Cancer Awareness Month

Did you know that there is a genetic screening test, called BRCA, which can identify genetic mutations which may increase your risk for developing certain types of cancer? This test may be particularly important if you have a family history of breast, uterine, ovarian, or colon cancer. Your doctor can let you know if it’s right for you.

BRCA testing and counseling are performed right at Women’s Health Center, so if you’d like more information please sign in to your portal account and use the Ask A Question option to  send your doctor questions or the Request An Appointment option  if you’d rather schedule an appointment to discuss your family history and risk. Of course, you may always call us at 541-479-8363.

It’s important to remember that Pap smears do not test for ovarian cancer. Early diagnosis is usually made because women take note of several key symptoms. These can include: unexplained and persistent bloating, pelvic or abdominal pain, trouble eating or feeling full quickly, and urgency or frequency of urination.

For more information, please visit the National Ovarian Cancer Coalition’s website at http://www.ovarian.org/
