Ovarian Cancer: Who Are At High Risk Of Ovarian Cancer?

Ovarian Cancer

When the cell growth and division goes awry, cancer begins to emerge. In this case, there are new cells being formed, which are not needed by the body. Old cells, on the other hand, do not extinguish from the body as they normally do. And that extra cells formed can create a mass of tissue which can now be called a growth or tumor.

A malignant tumor in the ovary or ovarian cancer can grow and invade other organs next to the ovaries. These organs can be the fallopian tubes and uterus.

Who are at risk of ovarian cancer?

Women with family history of ovarian cancer are said to be at high risk of developing ovarian cancer.

Women with family history of cancer of the breast, colon, rectum, uterus have an increased risk of ovarian cancer.

Women with personal history of cancer, such as cancer of the uterus, breast, colon, rectum are also considered at high risk of ovarian cancer.

Studies showed that women who are diagnosed with ovarian cancer are females over 55 years old. Doctors also put older women who have never been pregnant at risk of ovarian cancer.

Women who take menopausal hormone therapy are also at high risk of developing ovarian cancer.

The next generation of breast cancer detection is now in the Philippines.

The Biofield Diagnostic System gives accurate and rapid results after 15 minutes.

Benefits are: Painless, non-invasive, 98% High-sensitivity, Low Risk, Rapid result and Less Expensive.

BDS obtains a Bio-electric Measurement:
- Electrical signal on skin surface
- Compares suspicious quadrant to uninvolved quadrants.
- correlates with cellular proliferative activity.

This technology shortens the diagnostic pathway as compared to mammography and biopsy.
