In brief: Yes
Many women with early stage ovarian cancer do not know they have it.
They will still have menstrual cycles. Ovarian cancer does not cause menstrual cycles to stop.

In brief: Unlikely
Unfortunately, most ovarian cancers don't have symptoms.
If they do, it is usually vague abdominal discomfort, bloating, getting full early. Most ovarian cancers happen after the menopause. However, some young women with certain ovarian cancers can present with pain or bleeding. So if you are concerned, you need to see your gynecologist.
