Hi Samantha . I dont think any of us can give you answers but you do need to get that bloating checked out , oh and dont be fobbed off, ask for a CA125 blood test. Do let us know how you get on, sending you a big hug, Kathy xx


Hello Samantha, hope you get back to sleep soon! Please go see a doc asap, and if you are seriously worried, go to you local A&E. Hopefully it will turn out to be something minor, but please get checked now. Wishing you all the best

Hi Samantha. As the girls said, please don't leave it in the hope it will just go away by itself. It may of course but get it checked as soon as possible. Don't be afraid and good luck. Kryssy xx


As Katmal says, CA125. Plus CEA which may detect other issues


Hi Samantha

If you are worried you have Ovarian Cancer you should go to your Doctor and ask for a CA125 blood test. All the best xx
