Symptoms associated with ovarian cancer.
Clin Obstet Gynecol 2012; 55(1):36-42CO

Abstract

Over the past decade there has been considerable evidence that women with ovarian cancer do have recognizable symptoms before diagnosis. The most common symptoms associated with ovarian cancer are abdominal bloating, increased abdominal size, pelvic pain, abdominal pain, feeling full quickly, and difficulty eating. Some studies also suggest that urinary symptoms are frequently present. When these symptoms occur more than 12 times per month and are of new onset, then ovarian cancer should be considered as a possibility. It is important for women and practitioners to be aware that ovarian cancer is not a "silent disease."
