Should I be concerned for the ovarian cancer having the symptoms of abdominal bloating, early fullness and upper abdomen contractions?

Hi, For about 6 weeks I ve been having various GI issues. Upper abdominal bloating, early fullness after eating, mid back discomfort, upper abdominal contractions. HIDA scan, gallbladder ultrasound came back normal. I feel all the discomfort is pretty high. Should I have concerns of ovarian cancer?

Hi
Thanks for your query.

Ovarian cancer is often insiduous and can oresent with these kind of symptoms to start with. You have said gall bladder ultrasound was normal. Did it include the whole of abdomen? if so, then possibilty of ovarian cancer is low. However, more detailed evaluation, if possible by a gyn onc is required to rule out ovarian cancer.

Hope this helps.
Regards.
