I don't know anything about ovarian cancer but as I am terrified I have it, I have been looking on the net for the symptoms and what you just posted are some of the symptoms which I came across. It also stated that the symptoms could be associated with things other than ovarian cancer, so try not to worry!

Abnormal Period
I'm going through a very abnormal period. First day started just spotting and 2nd nothing 3rd spotting now nothing. Having some cramps too.If it does not change in the next couple days i'm going to the doctors.There is no way I can be pregnant. My husband had a bisectomy and I haven't been with anyone else. So i'm scared it could be somthing serious.

I'm like you all and worry about the symptoms. I've been diagnosed with ovarian cysts, which share the same symptoms as cancer. Try not to worry, because the cysts are very common in women and most of the time they go away on their own and symptoms diasppear. If your really concerned, you can ask your doctor for a pelvic ultrasound, cysts and tumors will show up. If there is something suspicious a blood test can be done. Like I said, the cysts are really common, most women get them at some point in their life.

Yes thank you! Well I am sorry I didn't keep everyone updated but yes it was a ovarian cyst. I had a ultra sound and the doctor said it was a good size one and it will go away on it's own. Thank you so much for your replys :d
