In brief: Ovary pain?

The TV entertainer you mention is as credible as professional wrestling.
A majority of people have low back pain and it almost never is the first sign of cancer. Pelvic pain is worrisome and the screen for ovarian cancer is your annual pelvic exam. If this is normal, stop worrying, and stop watching phony medical television shows for your own comfort.

In brief: Doesn't have to be

Both of these symptoms are vague.
Cancer can cause pain, but it's not the first thing i jump to when i see a patient.See your doctor and tell them where the pain is, how long you have had it, what makes it better or worse, ect.You and your doc can then put a plan into action to figure out what it is and what to do about it.Dr oz is on tv.Go see your doctor to find out what is going on with you.

In brief: Could be, but rare

Low back pain is ususally due to musculo-skeletal issue.
While low back pain may be a feature of cancer, low back ache would be a poor marker for the presence of cancer.
