Thanks for posting your query.
The symptoms of excessive gas and bloating are not suggestive of ovarian cancer. There may be accumulation of fluid in the abdomen causing abdominal distension in such cases.
An ultrasound of abdomen will help in detecting any ovarian masses.
The problem of gas and indigestion is mainly related to the food you consume. Dietary modifications will help in symptomatic relief.
Hope this answers your query. I will be glad to answer the follow up queries that you have.
Please accept my answer in case you do not have further queries.
Wishing you good health.
Dr. Rakhi Tayal.
