Ovarian cancer is most common in women who have been through menopause, although it can affect women of any age. Early symptoms to look out for include persistent bloating, pain in the pelvis and lower stomach, and difficulty eating. The main treatment choices for ovarian cancer are surgery and chemotherapy. Radiation therapy may be used to destroy cancer cells.
