What are ovarian cancer symptoms?

None at first. Sadly, there is no screening for ovarian cancer and by the time it causes symptoms, it is often advanced. Abdominal swelling, pain, intestinal obstruction, or shortness of breath can happen in those cases. If you have a strong family history of cancer (any kind) please discuss risk reduction methods with an expert in cancer genetics.
