In brief: Of course, but...

Abdominal ca can present with a surprising variety of symptoms, but often is symptom free.
The intermittency of your distress with predictable resolution of discomfort after flares is good news.Alarm signs & symptoms include: weight loss or gain (ascites), bleeding with stool or urine, or from vagina, signs of obstruction (unremitting vomiting). Time to see a doctor & get evaluated for reassurance.
