What are the symptoms of ovarian cancer, and how do I decipher them from ordinary problems?

With difficulty: Sadly, there is no screening for ovarian cancer and by the time it causes symptoms, it is usually advanced. Abdominal swelling, pain, or shortness of breath can happen. You are young and ovarian cancer is not very common but I would advise you get regular gyn exams and describe any symptom to your doc. Make sure he/she knows if there is breast or ovarian cancer history in your family.

Abdominal distention: Good news...Ovarian cancer is very rare. Bad news...Ovarian cancer does not cause any symptoms until the later stages. It is uncommon to diagnose someone with ovarian cancer at an early stage. Most women with ovarian cancer will complain of a decrease in appetite and abdominal bloating or distention. At present there are no good screening tests for ovarian cancer.

Can an ovarian cyst rupture? What are the signs and symptoms of having an ovarian cyst and what are the dangers?

Yes: Every month when a woman ovulates there will be a cyst on one of her ovaries at least 2 centimeters in diameter. That cyst will rupture to release the egg. Most women do not know this has happened, but some women will have cramps or pain around the time of ovulation. Sometimes the cyst will fill with blood and be very painfull, usually it resolves on its own - but some will require surgery.

What are symptoms of ovarian cysts?

What are symptoms of ovarian cysts?

Usually Nothing: During reproductive age cysts are very common. Most women would have something considered a cyst at least once per year but would never know unless an x-ray test was performed due to pain. Often though the pain is completely separate from the cyst. The follicle (a cyst) that is the growing egg each month grows to 2-3 cm and ruptures each month. Cyst rupture is normal! Cysts unusually cause pain.

Menopause: It really means that there are little or no eggs left in the ovaries and therefore the ovary is not making any more estrogen.

Sometimes it happens all of the sudden and sometimes gradual.
