I was told I had ovarian cancer when I was 45 years old. The only thing I noticed was I would get so full after dinner. It was almost like severe pain; I ate off a coffee saucer. I went to bed one night and crossed my hands over my stomach. I felt this lump by my lower hip area. I thought, “Oh well, must be a fibroid.” Went to my doctor. He did an ultra sound and said we needed to remove it. Turned out to be the cancer. Mine was stage two. I had chemo and I am now a 24-year survivor. Thank you, GOD.
