Can ovarian cancer cause pain in right side and hip?

It might: A woman with ovarian cancer who develops new side or hip pain should notify her oncologist. Ovarian cancer can cause such pain if it has spread to the bones or is growing near the kidney or the muscles of the abdominal wall. It is rare for isolated hip or side pain to be the first symptom of ovarian cancer. ...Read more

Seek medical exam: Your oncologist needs to know about this groin node if you have not yet told him.Since your ca 125 is still in the normal range, i would not draw any conclusions but your doctor needs to examine you and guide you. It is best not to follow your disease with ca125 right now as it will likely have such fluctuatiosns, causing you to be nervous and anxious, yet it does not help in making treatment decis. ...Read more

I have an ovarian cancer, was on chemo for 4 months, now am cancer free but now my left hip is in much pain (had both hip replacements few years ago).?

Check it: I agree with dr. T. Hopefully your pain is due to arthritis or other bone-joint issues but pain in a cancer patient (particularly if always on the same spot or if worsens with time) should be properly evaluated to rule out metastases. ...Read more
