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

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

Not always the case: Ovarian cancer can cause inflammation which can result in fluid accumulation in the space surrounding the intestinal tract called the peritoneum. 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

You'll gain much. ...Read more

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
