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

Hi could you tell me if you have stomach distention with ovarian cancer u are able to suck your stomach in or would it not be possible?

The only treatment for this is to get your physician to order up a few imaging studies AND when they come back showing nothing, sit down with somebody wise and good and talk about what health, illness, and growing up mean to you. You'll gain much. ...Read more

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

I've been getting stomach aches for no reason, that last a while. Could it be ovarian cancer?

I've been getting stomach aches for no reason, that last a while. Could it be ovarian cancer?

No: Unless ovarian cancer is associated with metastatic disease to bowel causing intermittent intestinal obstruction, this lesion is usually painless. The tumor when it metastasizes goes to omentum and produces ascites where the belly first fills with fluid. Stomach aches are usually associated with gastric problems and may be controlled with antacids or acid inhibitors like Prilosec. ...Read more
