The risk factors for this form of cancer include:

  • Not having children (this may be due, partially, to the fact that these women have had no interruption of the ovulation cycle and thus have had more of these than women who have given birth)
  • Miscarriages
  • Multiple abortions
  • High fat diets
  • Use of some oral contraceptives & IUDs

In too many cases ovarian cancer goes undetected until it is in its later stages. Symptoms include abdominal pains or abnormal cramps.
