How and/or why does ovarian cancer cause feeling full / early satiety?

How and/or why does ovarian cancer cause feeling full / early satiety?

When it's too late: This is oversimplifying slightly. A very large ovarian mass can compress the stomach. This would have been found on pelvic exam. If you have any concerns about ovarian cancer, talk with your personal physician. Best wishes.

What can cause early satiety, nausea, and stomach pain (upper left) if abdominal ultrasound and chest CT were normal?

What can cause early satiety, nausea, and stomach pain (upper left) if abdominal ultrasound and chest CT were normal?

Many things: These symptoms may indicate a problem with how the stomach empties and can occur for many reasons. Abdominal ultrasound would not even visualize the stomach. Chest ct may image a portion of the stomach, but would easily miss both anatomic and functional stomach pathology. A GI specialist may be able to determine the appropriate workup (e.g., gastric emptying study, barium swallow, manometry).

Would ovarian cancer cause the feeling of being full all of the time? Or more likely just early satiety?

Would ovarian cancer cause the feeling of being full all of the time? Or more likely just early satiety?

Agree with Dr. Legha: Ovarian cancer does not have specific symptoms. Please consult this site for more information on this topic. Http://www. Mayoclinic. Org/diseases-conditions/ovarian-cancer/basics/symptoms/CON-20028096 For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form. Drink enough water daily so that your urine is mostly colorless. Practice safe sex.

Is it normal to have a 10 pound weight loss along with early satiety after after a med change over a month ago?

Side effects: Medications invariably have side effects. If a new medication caused nausea, or reduced appetites, some users could lose as much as 10 lbs. Sometimes this is desirable. Left your doctor know. If this is not a usual side effect, a thorough history and physical are in order.

My 6y had a solid gastric emptying study. Emptying %'s: 1hr 16%, 2hr 40.6% & 4hr 82%.hes fft, has early satiety. Dr said results normal. Your opinion?

Mild delay: Just by reviewing the results, the gastric emptying at 4 hrs show mild delay in emptying. Grading for severity of delayed gastric emptying based on 4 hour value in normal results: Grade 1 (mild): 11-20% retention at 4 hours Grade 2 (moderate): 21-35% retention Grade 3 (severe): 36-50% retention Grade 4 (very severe): >50% retention This is just based on results and no other clinical knowledge.

So early satiety isn't common with colon cancer? I'm 22 and have been worrying a lot

Very very rare at 22: At 22, colon cancer is so rare it should be the least of your concerns. Even if you were 50 early satiety is not the usual presentation, rectal bleeding or pain is. It is probably something else!

Had colonoscopy & pillcam - no view of cecum on either. No dx. Lots of mucus in stool (occasionally only mucus), pain, early satiety, etc. What now?

Had colonoscopy & pillcam - no view of cecum on either. No dx. Lots of mucus in stool (occasionally only mucus), pain, early satiety, etc. What now?

Mucus: You could try an old fashioned barium enema to view the Cecum if it wasn't adequately viewed on colonoscopy. Your symptoms suggest irritable bowel syndrome with mucus colitis. Have you been tested for gluten intolerance or sensitivity? Have you tried the fodmap diet? Discuss these with your gastroenterologist or get a second opinion.

I notice last 2 days I get full faster or early satiety and im 22 I first got worried of colon cancer but my stools are normal and no other symptoms?

I notice last 2 days I get full faster or early satiety and im 22 I first got worried of colon cancer but my stools are normal and no other symptoms?

Common things are...: Common things are common! That means one should look for common reasons for having one's symptoms. For feeling full shortly into a meal, there are many common reasons. The primary care doctor, after one or a few visits, can evaluate for the common causes. Then, a gastro-intestinal specialist can do added testing if needed. Cancer is always possible, but rare things are rare!

I understand colon cancer is rare in my 20s im 22 but is early satiety or loss of appetite specific symptoms of colon cancer? What are the main signs?

I understand colon cancer is rare in my 20s im 22 but is early satiety or loss of appetite specific symptoms of colon cancer? What are the main signs?

Wt loss: And early satiety are not normal, and you need a real vs a virtual person to ask you things, examine you, and see if further tests are needed. The one thing I'm fairly sure this is not is colon cancer. Can produce overt or covert blood, cramping, varied and changed bm patterns. A physical exam and full history would help a lot before mor costly testing.

These issues will: Require both more detailed history, interactive questions & examination to have any chance of reasonably accurate understanding.
