M Y mother's abdomen has slowly gotten bigger over the past few months. At first, she thought she was getting fat.
An increase in the abdomen size (bloating) that could be taken as a pregnancy is one of the more prominent signals of Ovarian Cancer. The best solution is not to guess but go to a good OBGYN and possibly have an ultrasound done. It's not over-reacting but being vigilant and protective of yourself by paying attention to the subtle changes, before they become urgent. As a former Radiology technician and Mammographer I postponed the needed checkup till pressure in the lower abdomen was very uncomfortable. I am blessed to be a survivor of a very rare Ovarian Ca. after treatment and 2nd look surgery, now over 13 years.
Women are especially made vulnerable to a number of health problems such as ovarian cancer because of hormonal imbalance during and after menopause. Osteoporosis is also one of the common problems that women go through with ageing and menopause. To reduce their risk of osteoporosis-related fractures most women take bone drugs as Fosamax. However, the article that I've read at http://www.fosamax-lawsuit.net/femur-fracture... also shows how Fosamax could also cause thighbone breaks in women.
