Maybe: There are many different diagnoses which could cause cramping in the pelvis. From benign (constipation, fibroid tumor) to malignant (rectal cancer, ovarian cancer, bladder cancer, etc). Symptoms of ovarian cancer can mimic many different diseases. The best advice is to be seen by your gynecologist for a pelvic examination and if necessary trans-vaginal ultrasound.
