Abdominal Bloating Ovarian Cancer
My sister is 16 yrs old. She has frequent urination, missed periods and abdominal bloating. Ovarian cancer? These symptoms will not go away.
Need to be seen: Assuming she is not pregnant (and a home pregnancy test is inexpensive and accurate), a physical exam and possibly an ultrasound should help with the diagnosis. Cancer is unusual but not impossible in a 16 y/o, but non cancer cysts in the ovaries and many other disorders can give similar symptoms. ...Read more
It is a cancer which arises from the ovary.

Despite its late presentation, there is a reasonable treatment for it, with some long term survivors even ...Read more
How is ovarian cancer found? Do many teens have it? Im nervous because i have very abnormal cycles & abdominal bloating sometimes.
I have problems with abdominal bloating. I eat healthy, exercise regularly, drink plenty. I've been tested for intolerances & ovarian cancer. Help?!
Glad to see: That your doc is helping you along. A test for food sensitivities that tests for about 99 different things may be helpful.

Also, pancreatic enzymes may be low. Peace and good health. ...Read more
I'm 26, upset stomach, can't eat,abdominal swelling,bloating, always feel full, irregular cycle, can this be ovarian cancer, not on bcp, never had sex?

Ask your doctor if you could have irritable bowel syndrome, or if a referral to a gastroenterologist is appropriate. They can also do a proper evaluation. Hope this helps! ...Read more
Ca Ovary, bloating: Hello ~ from the word bloating, I am assuming you mean increase in abdominal size,or enlargement of the belly.If that is what you mean, it usually occurs in Stage 4 of the disease and it is due to peritoneal fluid increase (ascites) and from direct spread from the ovary to the peritoneum.

25yo female with stomach discomfort and fatigue. No bloating just very gassy and little appetite. Gets a little full faster. Serious?? Ovarian cancer?
Prepyloric ulcer: stomach bloating and fatigue not characterized for stomach lesion. Bleeding and peforation more common but these symptoms suggest partial outlet obstruction defined by gastroscopy.

It depends.: Pain and bloating can be signs of ovarian cancer, but they can be just from a painful period. Ovarian cancer would be more likely in older women, like 40+ years, and most likely in women 70+ years. Other tests, like pelvic exam, ca-125, and transvaginal ultrasound would be needed. ...Read more
