In brief: No

A primary ovarian cancer is hard to dx because mostly asymptomatic.
When it spreads, it induces ascites from omentum. Then spreads to bowel where GI symptoms arise. Aching in hips and pelvic especially on moving is sign of musculo skeletal problem. A pelvic CAT scan can resolve issue, if at all needed.
