What are the symptoms of ovarian cancer?

I have a 2.6cm complex cyst, a 5 x 4 cm cyst on the right ovary and a shadow behind the bowel have been having scans and test for 10 months with constant abdominal pains, swollen tummy, sharp pains all down the right side and constant severe back pain. my ca125 blood test came back raised. Could this be ovarian cancer ?

Thanks for posting.
I understand your concern.

Yes, this may be ovarian cancer but it may also be due to endometriosis, a benign condition.
Probably you will need an exploratory surgery (laparoscopy or laparotomy) to check directly and do biopsy to confirm the diagnosis.

Hope this helps.
Please get back if you need any more clarifications
