What does a stomach swollen from ovarian cancer look like?

Abdominal distention

Ovarian_cancer
It is the abdomen, not the stomach, that is swollen in some patients with advanced ovarian cancer. This is mainly due to accumulation of fluid (called ascites) within the abdomen. The fluid over time causes distention of the abdomen (just like what you would see in a pregnant women). The more the fluid accumulates, the more distanded the abdomen and patients may have discomfort and pain.

Stage 4 ovarian cancer now has a fluid mass between stomach and liver does this mean it has spread to liver?

Stage 4 Cancer

Open-uri20130205-21424-1cmzobl
Not necessarily, but it does suggest at least inter abdominal spread, if not metastatic disease to the liver. An imaging study of the liver and abdomen can tell where it has spread.

Found a 2cm cyst. bleeding in between period. extremely loud stomach growling and very bloated for 30 days. I wake up with growling. ovarian cancer?

It's possible

Abdominal_discomfort
I assume you mean you have an ovarian cyst. If this was seen on ultrasound, it's likely to be a cyst and not cancer. You are very young, and there are many things that can cause the symptoms you describe. However, bloating is a common symptom among women who are later diagnosed with ovarian cancer. I'd go back to your doctor and emphasize how bloated you've been, and ask the same question!

It is probably a simple ovarian cyst, you are young and ovarian cancer is rare at your age, follow up with your GYN and repeat Ultrasound in 2-3 months

Prognosis

The prognosis (outlook) for anyone with stage IV ovarian cancer is quite grave. Additionally, if your sister is having frank blood while on the toilet, she should be in immediate contact with her physician or brought into the emergency room.

Dr. Bernard Seif answered:

I have problems with abdominal bloating. I eat healthy, exercise regularly, drink plenty. I've been tested for intolerances & ovarian cancer. Help?!

Glad to see

Ovarian_cancer
that your doc is helping you along. A test for food sensitivities that tests for about 99 different things may be helpful. Great Plains Lab has one; I'm not connected w/them for sales, etc. Standard lab tests often give a yes or no to wheat, dairy, etc. This will tell you levels of sensitivity which is very useful. Also, pancreatic enzymes may be low. Peace and good health.

What does abdominal pain feel like that is associated with ovarian cancer?

A SPECTRUM

Open-uri20121007-19169-wwbyq5
There is no specific type or location of abdominal pain that is specific to ovarian cancer. Some women feel nothing, others have bloating and some have a variety of other symptoms. Best thing is to see your doctor and inform him of your concern, I'm sure the best test and exam will be done.
