That's the thing. Symptoms of early ovarian cancer are SO subtle and are often things we experience for other reasons. Some women have GI difficulty, a bit of middle girth gain, bloating, nausea, loss of appetite. But truthfully, a lot of women have few if any symptoms early on. It's normally diagnosed in later stages because of this and even then symptoms are very subtle and vague. Why are you associating ovarian cancer with your symptoms?
I also have low back pain for months, along with feet an legs swelling, indigestion...common everyday stuff, right? Had a CT scan and a an ovarian cystic mass was discovered. Ultrasound confirmed a complex separated mass. CA125 was normal. GYN recommendation is total hysterectomy. I am 67. Whatever your symptoms, please be persistent and get the. Checked out.
