Ovarian Cancer (Definition)

It is a cancer which arises from the ovary. This cancer is typically silent, producing little or no symptoms till it spreads, first into the pelvic area and later into the peritoneal cavity leading to fluid accumulation(ascites) which is often the first symptom. Despite its late presentation, there is a reasonable treatment for it, with some long term survivors even ...Read more

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

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

Degenerative joint: Djd is a common condition of aging, and may be contributed to by prior trauma, obesity, and other underlying conditions.

IBS: Do you have IBS or IBD? There is a difference. Ovarian cancer is not very common, but if you have family history of it, or of breast cancer in first generation family members, you will want to check with your gynecologist for regular exams. Do you have bowel movement changes that point more to colonic issues? An exam by your primary MD and some bloodwork if warranted would be a first step. ...Read more

No: A primary ovarian cancer is hard to dx because mostly asymptomatic. When it spreads, it induces ascites from omentum. Then spreads to bowel where GI symptoms arise. Aching in hips and pelvic especially on moving is sign of musculo skeletal problem. A pelvic CAT scan can resolve issue, if at all needed. ...Read more

See exerts timely...: For a young lady as you're, the first things to look into are how you void and defecate. If all alright, see a gynecologist timely; it's better than online second-guessing.

I am 44 years old. I have a strong family history of ovarian/breast cancer and braca2 of unknown significance. I getvery painful menstrual cramps. Could I have ovarian cancer?

The curse of the VUS: Personal and family history trumps genetic testing. If you have strong family history of breast/ovarian cancer, it could be that the vus is truly a deleterious mutation yet to be identified as such or have another gene involved besides brca. I would advise you see your gyn and a specialist with expertise in genetic testing/risk assessment. They will go over ways to reduce cancer risk for you. ...Read more
