None at first: Sadly, there is no screening for ovarian cancer and by the time it causes symptoms, it is often advanced. Abdominal swelling, pain, intestinal obstruction, or shortness of breath can happen in those cases. If you have a strong family history of cancer (any kind) please discuss risk reduction methods with an expert in cancer genetics.

Bloating, fullness: Unfortunately, ovarian cancer often causes vague symptoms which are often mild so the patient is not brought to medical attention until the cancer is advanced. Some symptoms can include bloating, changes in urinary or bowel habits, a feeling of fullness, and increased abdominal size. These symptoms are often present daily.
