As above, if someone has ovarian cancer will they always have bloating? Or can they suffer pain with absolutely no bloating?
I am waiting for follow up with GP after blood tests, smear and tests for infection and am expecting them to say I can't have ovarian cancer as my only symptom is pain. I am not bloated at all, am quite slim and muscular with strong defined abs, have no digestive problems and my CA125 was apparently normal. But I do have pain in my right side that has lasted 6 months, is persistent and does not go away day or night, no matter what I am doing. Its not severe in the grand scheme of things, but its been getting a little worse over the last 6 weeks. It hurts more if I do squats at the gym or if my cats jump on or lie on my lower abdomen. If it can't be ovarian cancer, and it probably isn't, that's brilliant but if there is a chance it still could be despite normal CA125 and no bloating then I want to make sure that I get the appropriate scans to be sure, rather than just being told to go away and come back if it still hurts in another 6 months! So I guess I'm looking for advice on what to talk to my doctor about and what I should and shouldn't accept from them. (I got told a prolapsed disc was a pulled muscle previously so I now like to question everything!). Thanks
