The primary reasons ovarian cancers go undetected are that there is no reliable screening test and the symptoms are subtle and fairly non-specific. They may include:

  • Abdominal discomfort, pressure, bloating, or swelling
  • Urinary urgency and/or change in bowel habits
  • Pelvic pain/discomfort
  • Loss of appetite, indigestion, gas or nausea
