In brief: Uterine CA & Ascites
Yes, if the cancer has spread to the abdomen or liver. Your doctor should order an MRI and other studies to determine the cause of the fluid build up.
Whatever the cause, ascites should be worked up thoroughly to determine the cause and therapeutic measures initiated immediately to relieve the fluid build up and tackle the underlying cause.
