Signs or Symptoms of Ovarian Cancer:
Ovarian Cancer: NWHIC (Excerpt)
There are usually no obvious symptoms of ovarian cancer. Women complain
about vague symptoms including abdominal swelling or bloating, generalized
abdominal discomfort, early satiety, lack of appetite, dyspepsia, malaise,
urinary frequency or weight change (either gain or loss). Women may
develop unexplained ascites (fluid in the abdominal cavity) which
contributes to the abdominal discomfort. Because the symptoms are not
unique to ovarian cancer, the disease can be difficult to identify and
diagnose. (Source: excerpt from Ovarian Cancer: NWHIC)
