Misdiagnosed ovarian cancer leads to poorer prognosis

A woman was misdiagnosed with lactose intolerance and irritable bowel syndrome after suffering from a persistent stomach pain. She was eventually correctly diagnosed with ovarian cancer. 1 in 70 women will be diagnosed with the disease and many deaths are caused by late diagnosis. Symptoms of ovarian cancer are pelvic or stomach pain, discomfort, bloating, frequent urination, excess gas, unusual weight gain or loss, nausea and indigestion.
