10 Early Warning Signs of Ovarian Cancer

8. Feeling full quickly or difficulty eating

Women suffering from ovarian cancer may experience a sudden loss of their appetite. It could sometimes be due to improper digestion of foods that have been eaten earlier. Women with ovarian cancer usually find it difficult to eat even their favorite foods as they can very quickly begin to feel full. Though this is not a sure symptom of ovarian cancer, there are still chances of this problem becoming fatal if the patient is not able to eat a properly balanced diet for a prolonged period of time. It normally happens because the cancerous elements do not allow the breakdown of food into energy due to its effect on an individuals metabolism. In the advanced stages of cancer the patient feels full very quickly since the placement of the cancerous tumor on the intestines presses against the surface of the stomach.
