Frequent urination, some pelvic pain & soreness right side, little nausea. Back pain but can't fully contribute as symptom. Scared of ovarian cancer?

Uti: The sudden onset would make me worry less about ovarian cancer but rather a UTI which by virtue of the pain and nausea, would make me worry about pyelonephritis although you did not say anything about fever. Go get evaluated and that should be the best way and the best thing for you. ...Read more

Cancer is a group of diseases that is characterized by uncontrolled cell growth leading to invasion of surrounding tissues that spread to other parts of the body.

Is having to urinate a minimum of every three hours considered frequent urination ? I don't recal what has been normal for me. Ovarian cancer ???

Is having to urinate a minimum of every three hours considered frequent urination ?  I don't recal what has been normal for me.  Ovarian cancer ???

Yes it may be: Frequent urination means having to run to the bathroom even when your bladder is not full of urine. It is usually a combination of frequent urination(for small quantities) and urge to rush to the bath room which implies bladder infection. This can be verified with a urine test(called Urinalysis/UA). Ovarian cancer is less likely unless you have swelling of your abdomen? ...Read more

I have stomach bloat, pelvic pain, abdo pain, frequent urination, dizziness, dull headaches, nausea. Complication with a ?pregnancy or ovarian cancer

No way to...: There is no way to tell until you get the appropriate tests for your symptoms. First of all if you suspect you might be pregnant get a pregnancy test. Ovarian cancer is far less common than pregnancy so it is not one of the first things to consider unless you have had a diagnosis of this sort in the past. My recommendation is to see your gynecologist for exam and tests as needed and appropriate. ...Read more

My sister is 16 yrs old. She has frequent urination, missed periods and abdominal bloating. Ovarian cancer? These symptoms will not go away.

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

I have had my period for 8 years. I have missed this period and i have pain in by back,sides,and ovaries.I have constipation and frequent urination. ? What could this be? I know I have ovarian cyst. Could it be ovarian cancer, or a kidney infection. I am

Go see ur FamilyDoc: Without painful urination, it's very unlikely for you to have a kidney infection. At your age, it's unlikely for you to have ovarian cancer. However, you should see your Family Doc for evaluation & treatment. Perhaps you're suffering from endometriosis or maybe you're pregnant. There are many possibilities so go see your Family Doc. ...Read more

I have pubic bone pain and urinary frequency. Doctor ordered a transvaginal ultrasound that came back clear. Could it be ovarian cancer? (age28, brca)

I have pubic bone pain and urinary frequency. Doctor ordered a transvaginal ultrasound that came back clear. Could it be ovarian cancer? (age28, brca)

Probably not: It is very unlikely to have ovarian cancer at 28yo. A negative ultrasound doesn't necessarily rule it out but is a good indicator that the ovaries are ok at this time. If you are brca positive, then you should have an ultrasound and ca125 test every 6 months which may help a little but even better is to remove ovaries once you have completed your family. ...Read more

Cyst on ovary, fullness sensation, little bitof blosting and nausea, very small appetite.  I do have a type of colitis. Ovarian cancer?

Get checked!: The early signs of Ovarian cancer include vague symptoms like bloating, diarrhea alternating with constipation, vague abdominal and back pain, and early satiety (getting full after eating a small amount). It's most likely you DON'T have ovarian cancer, but you should be checked by a doctor with that possibility in mind. It's curable when caught early! Don't let fear hold you back! ...Read more

Having the urge to urinate a lot. Had a pelvic exam and vag u/s 5 months ago. Uti ruled out. Could it be ovarian cancer?

Seems unlikely: Ovarian cancer would not be my first thought in someone with urinary urgency. Overactive bladder and interstitial cystitis are common causes. An obgyn visit will be needed to help sort this out and do the evaluation. If needed a referral to a Urogynecologist may be helpful. ...Read more
