Difference in symptoms between ovarian cysts and ovarian cancer?

I'm curious on a personal level with uncomfortable, unusual symptoms that have come up in the last 4 months of my life.  Can someone tell me the difference between symptoms of Ovarian Cancer and Ovarian Cysts?

Hello, sorry your not feeling well.  This is a very difficult question.  I have ovarian cancer and I have a sister who always gets cysts, but we shared some of the same symptoms (bloating, bleeding, cramping), yet there are other symptoms that are experienced and some that not all experience too.  Even when I had a trans vaginal ultra sound, my doctor's thought I had cysts like my sister, until I had a CT scan.  Going to the gynecologist and having the proper tests are the only way you'll know for sure.

Take care, Angie
