so afraid I have ovarian cancer...losing my mind!!
« on: June 17, 2014, 11:15:25 PM »
I haven't been able to get my mind off of this all day.  I have had this bloating and full feeling for over a week now, and a lot of stomach discomfort and pains in various places, some of which feel as though it could be my ovaries.  I've also had to pee like every 5 minutes, especially at nighttime.  I am literally having a panic attack right now--I know those symptoms are linked to ovarian cancer and I'm just soooo terrified.

How old are you?  Ovarian cancer is extremely rare in pre-menopausal people.  What you describe could be, and almost certainly is, related to something benign.  Anxiety, indigestion, cysts, gas.

I'm 24, and swore I had ovarian cancer all last summer. I was bloated, had alternating diarhea and constipation, pain and cramping, spotting at one point after sex, and the worst was a heavy, stabbing pain feeling near my rectum when I walked or sat down. I knew I had tumors on my ovaries and it was too late. Add to that, my temp was 99.4 randomly some days and my weight was jumping up and down. After many ultrasounds and blood tests, it was proven I did not have ovarian cancer I did have a small normal cyst on one ovary. All my symptoms except the IBS type symptoms went away over time. :) I've have IBS type symptoms for many years. I of course, tied it all in to the ovarian cancer fear.
