Symptoms of ovarian cancer. Bleeding abnormally, pain, tired, increase in weight. Constipation for some time now. Could this be cancer?

I have all the symptoms of ovarian cancer. I even bleed abnormally all the time. The pain is getting worse and I am more tired than I ever have ever been. I try to eat healthy. I am a vegetarian. My weight has unexpectantly sky rocketed and I cannot get it off. I already have a bad back, but my back hurts consistently now too. I am scared. My grandmother died of ovarian cancer, but my mother and sisters have never had it. Lately, I have been constipated for weeks and there is no reason to be. Am I at risk of having cancer?

As per your statement you have told some symptoms but your worry was not diagnosed. You bleed abnormally,tired, painful where?, Back hurts and you have remarkable loss of weight. Your grand mother died of ovarian cancer where as your mom, and aunt are not having any problem. You have not mentioned your age. All the symptoms you have mentioned may be associated with an ordinary problem without cancer. But your complaints need investigations to rule out your worry

Even doctors could not arrive at a diagnosis after hearing your complaints and examining you clinically.

investigations are needed like USG, Xray, MRI of spines and if needed CT abdomen and blood investigations to arrive at diagnosis. Till then don't worry and spoil your days. Consult a gynecologist, do the investigation and get treatment accordingly.

Best wishes

Hi and welcome to HCM.
You are having a risk ,but cancer isnt the first thing to think of. There are various gyn disorders which can cause such symptoms such as endometriosis, ovarian cysts or hormonal imbalance. You shoul really do pelvic and vaginal ultrasounds at least and hormonal levels. Constipation can be related do these disorders too, but it can be disease for itself. SO go step by step and first rule out pelvic pathology. Wish you good health.
