Abdominal pain, bloating, shortness of breath, constipation, uterine bleeding. Uterine cancer?

Hi. I have a whole series of symptoms that have arisen over the past few weeks. Abdominal pain . Bloating . Occasional shortness of breath. Constipation. Uterine bleeding. And in the last week, a rather large lump underneath my left ribcage. I ve had a pelvic ultrasound. No ovarian cancer . Still waiting on uterine cancer biopsy. And my white blood cell count is elevated. No one knows what it is.

hi there, depending on your age abdominal pain with bloating and bleeding cyclically can signify normal menstural cycle with dysmenhorea.If you are post menopausal then you may need to worry and get a pelvic ultrasound along with PAP smear exam and a physical exam done by a gynecologist.Certain tumor markers like CA-19,CEA can also be done. Elevated white cell count signifies an infective state and so you will need to get a differential count and a peripheral smear study done. An abdominal ultrasound could be done to know the origin of the lump that you felt beneath your ribcage and whether it is significant in your present history. The best thing to do would be to consult a genenral physician and get any investigations done according to his advise. Take care.
