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.

I m 61 of my younger sisters(5yrsyoungr) died from ovarian cancer, but my 2 older sistes are fine. What are my chances?
Increased b/c fam.hx: Because of your family history, i would say your chances of getting this are somewhat higher. About 5% of these have a familial element. The risk also increases with age after the 5th decade, and peaks in the 8th decade. If you were pregnant and used oral contraceptives, this reduces risk, but if you had no pregnancies, that is an increased risk. I advise close follow up with your doctor. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
