Maybe: If a female has questionable ovarian pathology a pelvic exam is useful because ovaries can be palpated for the most part. If noted, workup should continue. A pelvic sonogram can also tell whether a simple or complex cyst is present or a solid lesion of ovary is present and that laparoscopic removal is needed.

Varies: Early ovarian cancer may have no symptoms at all, or present with a fullness in the pelvis, pain in the ovarian area, etc. Ovarian cysts can also have pain. Late stage ovarian cancer tends to present with bloating, a feeling of fullness, adominal girth increase, etc.
