Bloating: those complaints can be indicative of many disorders not just ovarian cancer. I would not ignore he symptoms and see your doctor for an evaluation

May be: There are no specific signs of ovarian cancer. The symptoms you mentioned are associated with ovarian cancer, but then these symptoms are also present in lots of people without ovarian cancer. See this site for information on this subject. http://www.mayoclinic.org/diseases-conditions/ovarian-cancer/basics/symptoms/con-20028096
