Is one sided pelvic pain symptom of ovarian cancer?

Probably not. There are many causes for one-sided pelvic pain, and it depends on which side. Ovarian cysts, endometriosis, appendicitis, inflammatory bowel disease, urinary stones, pelvic infections, and even simple constipation can cause this. A healthcare provider needs to ask you more questions and examine you. Unless you have risk factors for ovarian cancer, it's low on my list of causes. So go in!
