Kidney Infection Linked With Ovarian Cancer
Not pregnant have all symptoms of ovarian cancer went to ER told I have kidney infection but no pain when urinate or no blood 30 years old 2 children?
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. Cancer can begin anywhere in the body and is usually related to one or more genetic mutations that allow normal cells to become malignant by interfering with internal cellular control mechanisms, such as programmed cell death or by preventing ...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
Yes, but...: It is possible that a renal ultrasound might detect some findings associated with ovarian cancer but the cancer would have to be relatively advanced for such findings to be present. Ascites (fluid in the abdomen) soft tissue masses on the abdominal wall (peritoneal implants), and blockage of the kidneys may be seen. The ovaries themselves would not typically be studied. ...Read more

I am not following y:
Virus infection has no role to play in ovarian cancer (you are confusing it with cancer of the cervix which is caused by hpv viruses)
there is a blood test (called ca-125) which can be of some help for detection of cancer of the ovary but it is not always entirely reliable. ...Read more
31 YO Female. Very mild muscle type pain in right side, some in hip and lower back. Only symptoms and 4 days from start of period. Ovarian cancer?
21 yrs old, cramps not on period, lower back pain, I do go to gym a lot but is this ovarian cancer? I am on the nuva vaginal ring. Help please
I get full easily, throw up after meals, sleep a lot, pee a lot, and have a lot of pain in my lower back and near my hips/abdomen. Ovarian cancer?
Back pain&ovarianCA: Ovarian ca is the silent ca. It is hard to diagnosis and it can be easily confused with other problems. Symptoms are bloating, pelvic and back pain, frequent urination, difficulty eating, weight loss, which have been present for at least 6-12 months. The most common cause of frequency and back pain is a bladder infection...But pleas see your doctor and get checked out for both. ...Read more
Ovarian cancer? Sometimes achy lower back, pellet like stool with constipation can't sleep at night. Regular periods though and no family history.
Unlikely given age.:
But your symptoms need to be dealt with. Please see your doctor for a complete history and physical.
Basic treatments for constipation should be undertaken - your symptoms could all be related to constipation.
Imaging of your pelvis (ovaries and uterus primarily) with ultrasound may also be helpful, especially if basic treatments do not resolve your symptoms. ...Read more

Urinoanalysis showed nothing wrong. No cancer cells even thx god. But rbc 18-20. Kidney infection they told me. Is it related?
Ultrasound found kidney infection. I have blood in urine but they did many other tests. If I had bladder cancer would it show in ultrasound?
Not really.: This is from presence and proliferation of the endometrium cells outside of the uterus. They can even deposit on the ovary. Complications, like adhesions, pelvic cysts, and chocolate cysts of the ovary occur. Use of oral contraceptives can lower the risk of this as well as that of ovarian cancer, but aside from this, no connection between this and ovarian cancer is known. ...Read more
Yes, there can be: There are some genetic blood tests brca type. So far, there is brca I and brca 2. This doesn't mean you can't have an inherited form of breast ca and ovarian ca---as of now not yet discovered, and no blood test to determine a patient's risk. A woman can have breast and ovarian cancer and have negative genetic tests----we don't have all the answers yet. ...Read more
Are there any links between mittelschmerz (severe sharp pain) and ovarian cancer? I also have bloating, fatigue, increased vaginal discharges, ovarian fdg uptakes. How concerned should I be?
Is there any evidence that links pregnancy-related hormone therapy treatments with increased risk of ovarian cancer?
Tough question: By this I assume you mean for in vitro vertilization. Any hormone manipulation has a potential for side effects. Increased Estrogens increases the risk of breast and cervical cancer, but lower estrogen increases risks of ovary and uterus--also influenced by Progesterone and other hormones. This is not a straight forward topic, as there are many studies that contradict each other. ...Read more
Stage 3 ovarian cancer diagnosed 2 weeks ago spread to abdomen. Drained fluid only. Docs say liver&kidney too poor for chemo. What are next options?
Get other opinions: If you were my patient I would recommend getting another opinion especially at a center that may have access to experimental protocols. Ask if there is anything to do to improve your chances for getting chemo. Surround yourself with supportive family and friends. ...Read more
Felt like something burst in abdomen. Uranysis showed high WBC no infection no symptoms since. Can this b a cyst? Or is it more likely ovarian cancer?
More likely cyst: It is more likely to be a cyst, but there are other important considerations: appendicitis, ectopic pregnancy, hernia, diverticulitis. Much less likely is ovarian cancer unless you have a strong family history of breast and/or ovarian cancer. An ultrasound would be helpful if your symptoms persist or get worse. ...Read more
Very watery discharge at times during month, feels like period. Not having sex. 30+. Dr said could be a yeast infection to ovarian cancer. Norm period?

Ovarian cancer is a diagnosis which would require a complete pelvoc exam and may involve blood work and imaging. generally at your age u would have to have a strong family history and other signs which may including generalized abdomninal discomfort with change in diet and appetite. having said that if u are at all concerned u need to be seen. ...Read more

The kidneys are paired organs that lie on either side of the vertebral column. Part of their critical functions include the excretion of urine and removal of nitrogenous wastes products from the blood. They regulate acid-base, electrolyte, fluid balance and blood pressure. Through hormonal signals, the kidneys control the ...Read more
