Weight gained, stomach bloating, urge to urinate, blood in urine. Advised tests. Symptoms of ovarian cancer?

Hi, I am a 52 year old female. I have had a hysterectomy @ 36 years old, still have my ovaries. I have my menopause ( I take the natural tabs which are Black Cohosh for hot flashes) and have gained 2 dress sizes in the past year. I have never had a weight problem prior to this past year. In the last 4 weeks or so I have had stomach bloating (no pain, just fullness and swelling) a lot (I look 5 months pregnant), as well as the need to urinate during the night, then the past few days I have had frequency to urinate up to 7 times a day and big amounts. I went to the GP today who said that I had large amount of blood in my urine and has ordered a blood test ASAP and an abdomen ultrasound (she mentioned she wants to check out my gallbladder ) plus a pelvic ultrasound to check out my ovaries. I am concerned that I may have early symptoms of ovarian cancer . Thank you for considering my question.

are you on hormone replacement therapy? this is to be mentioned. bloody urine may be due to urinary tract infection. it is better to go for an abdominal contrast enhanced CT scan. and urine routine and microscopic examination needed.your symptoms are vague. definite diagnosis ca not be done. so go for the imaging as early as possible.take care.
