Dr. Wayne Ingram
Specializes in Obstetrics and Gynecology
Ovarian cancer worry: Ovarian cancer's most common symptoms are abdominal fullness/bloating and pelvic pain. See your GYN MD to sort out your symptoms through examination and testing.

Vague symptoms: Ovarian cysts and early ovarian cancer don't generally increase the white count. A Tubo-Ovarian Abcess or Ovarian Torsion can increase the white count but are usually associated with severe pain. Ovarian Cancer is fairly silent initially but then can have vague, non-specific symptoms. See an Gyn yearly and discuss your concerns. Imaging of your ovaries will usually rule-out ovarian cancer.
