Yes Your ovaries grow along with the rest of your body. In older women they don't grow, the cells replace themselves. Some cells die off and new ones have to take over. Cancer is when the cells don't reprodure right when they grow or replace themselves wrong.

The ovarian cancer is the type of cancer that stops periods. The ovarian cancer can also cause the post-menopausal women to start bleeding because the hormones that are produced make the lining of the womb thicker.

Ovarian cancer does not produce specific symptoms that would clue doctors to this diagnosis. Most common symptoms include malaise, weakness, bloating, vague abdominal discomfort. There are no good blood markers that can diagnose ovarian cancer. Therefore, it is difficult to screen for ovarian cancer. By the time symptoms develop, quite often ovarian cancer can already be spread and metastasized.

In some ways it is. Ovarian cancer is known as an estrogen driven cancer. That means that if someone in your family has had ovarian cancer, it is wise to not stay on The Pill to long or to have unsupervised estrogen treatment.

I just recently had a friend who had both cervical and ovarian cancer. The strange thing was the ovarian cancer was one type of cancer in stage 2 and the cervical cancer was a totally different type of cancer in stage 1. She recovered fully from both.

The symptoms of ovarian cancer are non-specific, meaning they are very general (eg, abdominal pain) and so ovarian cancer can be confused with lots of other things. See a doctor and ask specifically if your symptoms and signs fit those of ovarian cancer.
