When ovarian cancer symptoms are present, they tend to be persistent and worsen with time. Signs and symptoms of ovarian cancer may include:

  • Abdominal pressure, fullness, swelling or bloating
  • Pelvic or abdominal discomfort or pain
  • Vague but persistent indigestion, gas or nausea
  • Changes in bowel habits, such as constipation
  • Loss of appetite or quickly feeling full
  • Increased abdominal girth or clothes fitting tighter around your waist
  • A persistent lack of energy
  • Lower back pain
  • Frequency and/or urgency of urination in the absence of an infection;
  • Unexplained weight gain or weight loss
  • Ongoing unusual fatigue;

If symptoms persist for more than a few weeks, ask your doctor for a combination pelvic/rectal exam, CA-125 blood test, and transvaginal ultrasound.

A Pap Smear Test WILL NOT detect ovarian cancer.

2 out of 3 women diagnosed with ovarian cancer will die.
