What are the symptoms of ovarian cancer?

Hi I am 45 years old and had a partial hysterectomy 18 years ago. I started bleeding clots 2 weeks ago and pain increased significantly in lower left pelvis that comes and goes. I have difficulty voiding sometimes not always. So I went to the dr. this week thinking I had a UTI infection. My tests said no UTI or bladder infection. CT scan showed no kidney stones left ovary significantly larger than right and cysts on lower left pelvis. My ob-gyne said my ovaries were OK? I have family history of mother & sister ovarian ca and sister of bladder ca?

Hi, dear
I have gone through your question. I can understand your concern. You have family history of ovarian cancer.
Symptoms of ovarian cancer are abdominal pain, mass in abdomen and other non specific symptoms. You should go for CA125 test. It is marker of ovarian cancer. So if it high you should go for further investigation. If it is normal then no need to worry.
Just be relaxed.
Hope I have answered your question, if you have doubt then I will be happy to answer. Thanks for using health care magic. Wish you a very good health.

Hi, dear
I have gone through your question. I can understand your concern. Symptoms of ovarian cancer are abdominal pain and abdominal mass. You should go for CA 125 level once. It is helpful in diagnosis of ovarian cancer. If your gynecologist said that your ovary is ok then no need to worry. Just go for test to rule out ovarian cancer.
Hope I have answered your question, if you have doubt then I will be happy to answer. Thanks for using health care magic. Wish you a very good health.
