Signs and Symptoms of Ovarian Cancer
There is no screening method for early detection for ovarian cancer. Pap smears test only for cervical cancer. The symptoms of ovarian cancer are vague and often overlooked, leading to later detection:
Abdominal swelling or bloating, increased girth
Persistent pressure or pain in the abdomen or pelvis
Difficulty eating or feeling full quickly
Urinary concerns, such as urgency or frequency
Change in bowel habits with new onset constipation and/or diarrhea
Unexplained vaginal bleeding
