Mehmet Oz, MD, Cardiology, answeredThe pelvic region contains some reproductive and urinary tract organs, such as the uterus, ovaries and bladder. Some women may be accustomed to pelvic pain, cramping and bloating as part of the normal menstrual cycle, but it can also point to cancer of the ovaries. One of the problems with ovarian cancer is that pain usually appears late in the disease because the ovaries on each side of the uterus have a spacious cavity to grow in, and painful symptoms only appear when the tumors enlarge. But research is revealing that many women with ovarian cancer do in fact experience symptoms. The Ovarian Cancer Tipoff: Pelvic, abdominal or lower back pain, bladder pressure, changes in urinary bowel patterns, bloating, fullness and weight loss can be a sign of ovarian cancer.Helpful? 3 people found this helpful.
