I would encourage any ladies (post menopause) to have a blood test (I had it done privately) every year, because so many symptons are similar. I have had IBS for many years, so ignored many small symptons which I attributed to my IBS, which I now know are bad signs for the presence of ovarian cancer. It was only because I went for a private health screening that I discovered that I had 2 or 3 indications of something more sinister. At the moment I am waiting to have an ultra sound scan and further blood tests to see whether I have cancer or not, which is very frightening, and I would not have known there was anything wrong at all until it was too late,which may still be the case. So ladies, please get it done and save yourselves the terrible worry my husband and I are going through at this moment - it could save your life!
