So, to help out the cause, I thought I'd list some of the symptoms for those who might be wondering. Part of the problem with ovarian cancer is that the diagnostic tests are not very reliable, so it makes understanding the symptoms that much more important.
- Pelvic or abdominal pain
- Trouble eating or feeling full quickly
- Feeling the need to urinate urgently or often
Other symptoms of ovarian cancer can include:
- Upset stomach or heartburn
- Back pain
- Pain during sex
- Constipation or menstrual changes
