Stomach feels tight and bloated but dosent look bloated worried about ovarian cancer?

Stomach feels tight and bloated but dosent look bloated worried about ovarian cancer?

Proabably not: Most ovarian cancers don't reach enormous sizes to allow bloating or palpation. They metastasize readily and to a site of TGF-B, that is the omentum which produces a factor allowing ascetic fluid to fill the abdomen. At that time on palpation, the bloating is not from gas but from fluid distention. A qualified physician can tell on palpation or with somography if ovarian Ca is there. ...Read more

All women have...: some risk, 1-2% in a lifetime. It increases after age 60 & in women with a FH of ovarian cancer or who've never given birth. Most of your symptoms are from pre-menopausal hormone changes. Ovarian Ca may cause abdominal bloating but so can many other conditions. A pelvic exam and ultrasound & a blood test called CA-125 are reasonable screening tests if you're particularly worried. Dr. Anne. ...Read more

Hi could you tell me if you have stomach distention with ovarian cancer u are able to suck your stomach in or would it not be possible?

Easy does it: You would have a palpable mass in your lower abdomen. Like many other bright young people, you have the obsessive idea that you have a serious illness. The only treatment for this is to get your physician to order up a few imaging studies AND when they come back showing nothing, sit down with somebody wise and good and talk about what health, illness, and growing up mean to you. You'll gain much. ...Read more

Why does abdomen fill up with fluid when ovarian cancer is present?

Some types of ovarian cancer make mucous which can also fill this space. Both situations cause fluid accumulation, weight gain and bloating. However, ovarian cancer may not cause these symptoms which is why regular checkups are important. ...Read more
