blue veins on pelvis sign of ovarian cancer?

Usually not.: Although a pelvic or abdominal tumor can lead to an increase in pelvic veins seen on the skin, there are more frequent causes such as malfunctioning (refluxing) valves in the saphenous system or even in the ovarian veins (pelvic congestion syndrome).A ct of the abdomen and pelvis as well as a leg venous ultrasound will help to make the diagnosis. See a vein specialist.
