A common complaint among patients is feeling “overwhelming fatigue” or “uncomfortable” while taking a pill, and it’s a sign of a cancerous tumor, researchers said.
The Florida Department of Health said more than one-third of women in its survey said they had a gynecologist visit them for gynecoplasty.
The survey, which surveyed more than 2,000 women between the ages of 18 and 50, found the most common complaint was “over-exertion,” and about 60 percent of women said they experienced “a sense of urgency” or anxiety, according to a release.
Researchers said the survey also showed that about two-thirds of gynecologists who participated said gynecovaginal cancer was a primary diagnosis.
The findings are consistent with research showing that gynecoplasties are “an effective treatment for gynecomastia” but may not be effective in treating other types of cancer, including ovarian, uterine, and cervical cancers, according the release.
The release also found that women are more likely to have symptoms of ovarian cancer if they are over 65 and have a history of breast cancer.
Women with cervical cancer are more at risk of cancer of the cervix and the bladder, the release said.
