Why would you ask that , did someone tell you you had ovarian cancer or an ovarian mass, if you are worried see your gyn asap and he or she will do an exam , ultrasound to start out with , then blood work to check also if the ultrasound shows anything suspicious, possible but not very common at your gae.

But you'll have to give us a few more clues to get our input, but better to see your doctor to discuss prospect and risk. Unless fm hx, brca-2 +, i would not worry at 24.

It is very unlikely to have ovarian cancer at 26. The symptoms of ovarian cancer are very non specific. If you are concerned then you should see your gyn.

Specializes in Pathology, Anatomic and Clinical

A malignant tumor in the ovary, which can take on many appearances, from cystic to solid, from small to large, can involve the ovary. Generally, ovarian cancer strikes after age 45, but it can appear as early as the 20's or 30's. It can be subtle or silent, or you may experience pain, bloating, bleeding, fatigue, or weight gain or loss. If you are concerned, see your gynecologist for an exam.
