Symptoms: These symptoms are non-specific. At your age, it would be reasonable to start with a transabdominal and transvaginal pelvic ultrasound. If negative, a ct abdomen/pelvis with oral and IV contrast may be helpful. Ovarian cancer would be unusual at your age. Consider testing for gluten sensitivity as a potential cause of your symptoms (read wheat belly book).

pelvic ultrasound: Your too young to have ovarian cancer unless you have a strong family history of breast or ovarian cancer. Pelvic pain, thigh pain and frequent peeing, if going on for a while, may point to something going on in pelvis with bladder irritation. Suggest a pelvic ultrasound and a gynecologic and urologist evaluation if symptoms persist. Not sure bloating is related , try lactose free diet.
