Consider food allergy testing.  If ovarian cancer is ruled out, FIRST.  Even something you've always eaten before, might be triggering the gas/bloating problem. My mother had ovarian cancer so I've always remained vigilant about annual vaginal ultrasounds, CA 125 testing etc. and was concerned when I noticed belly bloating - especially by the end of the day. I am post-menopausal and getting close to the most common age for ovarian cancer to show up (60 - 65)

Blood tests for food allergies and eliminating the offending foods from my diet - one was lettuce, even! - made a difference.  Food allergies can be temporary as well.  Sometimes you only have to eliminate them for a couple months then reintroduce slowly and on a rotation basis.

But, be sure to do the ob/gyn check.
