Sciatica, if any.: This usually presents with abdominal pain, bloating, urinary symptoms, and weight gain. This would indicate advanced disease beyond the pelvis. Leg pain is not a classic symptom, but may occur due to the size the ovarian cancer grows to, and present as sciatica, a condition seen in pregnancy when the baby is at or near term, and presses on the sciatic nerve, causing pain in the back thigh.

DVT: It can be related to the deep vein thrombosis. Other options: tumor compression of nerve roots or penetration of pelvic muscles.
