In brief: No, not usually

Acid reflux is due to a weak muscle in your food pipe(esophagus).
Ovarian cancer has no direct effect on it.

In brief: Yes, indirectly

If ovarian cancer has progressed, with involvement of abdominal tissue and omentum, or if ascites has developed, it will increase intra-abdominal pressure, thereby increasing the possibility of reflux.
There's no other direct relationship. Good luck.
