    Ovarian cancer begins in the ovaries.  Some early symptoms may include bloating, pelvic or abdominal pain, trouble eating or feeling full quickly and urinary symptoms such as urgency or frequency. While these symptoms may mimic a womens normal monthly cycle, Ovarian cancer can sometimes be hard to detect.   Gynecologic Oncology is a sub-specialty within the Department of Obstetrics & Gynecology established and dedicated solely to caring for the unique set of cancers that occur only in women. Our primary focus is the diagnosis and treatment management of reproductive cancers which include malignancies of the ovaries, uterus, cervix, fallopian tubes, vagina and vulva. Our physicians are experts in gynecologic oncology surgeries, including minimally invasive robotic surgery, and in the administration and management of chemotherapy for gynecologic cancers. Listen in as Larry E. Puls, MD discusses the signs and symptoms of ovarian cancer.
