What are the symptoms?
- Persistent pelvic or abdominal pain (that’s your tummy and below)
- Increased abdominal size/persistent bloating – not bloating that comes and goes
- Difficulty eating or feeling full quickly
- Needing to wee more urgently or more often than usual
Occasionally there can be other symptoms such as changes in bowel habits, extreme fatigue (feeling very tired), unexplained weight loss or loss of appetite. Any post-menopausal bleeding should always be investigated by a GP.
Symptoms will be:
- Frequent – they usually happen more than 12 times a month
- Persistent – they don’t go away
- New – they are not normal for you and may have started in the last year
Please note: If you have already had a diagnosis of ovarian cancer and are worried about new or ongoing symptoms you should tell your Clinical Nurse Specialist or key worker straight away. The Symptoms Diary is not designed to record the symptoms of recurrent ovarian cancer.
