I was wondering about the symptoms i have been having and if they have anything to do with ovarian cancer. They are stomach pain where the ovaries are and lower back pain. My menstral cycle is only lasting about 4 days but it is very heavy at times.
Since my ovarian cancer surgery in 2003, my stomach has been very bloated (looks like I'm 4-6 months pregnant- depends on what I eat). The Doctor did an 'exploritory' during surgery and cut my stomach muscles all the way up to my breast level. To give you more information about me : Before surgery- and all my life, I have had a ''flat'' stomach. My point is... how do I get it flat again???
CA125 is 32 and cat scans are good but I feel like I'm bloated and I have a stomach ache with some nausea. GP says its nothing but bloating makes me worry that something is happening and just hasn't shown up yet. Should I be going to my other doctors or am I making too much out of it?
Also I noticed a little drop in my weight and being 83 pounds (which has been the norm for as long as I can remember) I can't afford to lose any weight. I am at a lost and was just wondering what the likelihood is that I would have stomach cancer? If not, is there other conditions that I could have that could cause these symtoms? I am really worried and would appreciate your response.
I pray for you that you might not have cancer but usually Cirrhosis of the Liver or Cancer make you bloating, my mom is 65 with overian cancer and we had to take her to the hospital to have her belly drain twice already, first time she lloked more like a 10 month pregnant lady. God Bless and I hope you go to the hospital emergency soon for a professional opinion. Dermoid cysts of the ovary are fairly common and most often affect young women around the age of 30.

A MAJOR symptom of Celiac disease or gluten intollerance is gas, bloating, stomach pain, indegistion, burping, etc. If he does have celiac disease his body is now allergic to the protein gluten which is found in bread, beer, soy sauce, whiskey, salad dressing and many other items. He will continue to have these problems until he completely eliminates gluten from his diet.
and get up to begin activity (even waking to my vehicle) my stomach bloats severly, I have shortness of breath and a full hard stomach. No matter how much or how little I eat or what I eat. Dealing with this for 4 years, elimaniting everything and coming up with nothing. Is there any one else out there with these symptoms?? Any help would be greatly appreciated.
I am and have been for more than a year now been suffering with what can best be described at horrible stomach gas. Burping and flatulence constantly. Stomach rumbling. No other symptoms to speak of. No loss of appetite. No real pain, just discomfort. Bowel movements are relatively normal. I have had colonoscopy, endoscopy, cat scan, mri, blood test, with no diagnosis. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
If the upper endoscopy and upper GI are negative, stomach cancer is unlikely. If there continues to be suspicion, the upper endoscopy can be repeated. The right sided pain can still be caused by the gallbladder. A HIDA scan with CCK stimluation can be done to evaluate the gallbladder ejection fraction. If low, then the gallbladder may be responsible for the symptoms. If the tests continue to be negative, irritable bowel syndrome can be considered.
he asked about my stress and I told him I was worried I had stomach cancer because of my sour stomach and lack of appetite. he mentioned that at my age it would be very, very low. He said the lack of appetite is more for people 40 or 50, then it is a warning sign. He told me I was fine, onlything wrong with me since I wasn't in any real pain (minus the general picks and pins here and there that come from Chron's disease) and only had a low grade fever (99), that I was fine. I didnt have cancer.
Its neally a year since I had a full hysterectomy and my stomach is still bloating,can anyone recommend some exercises I can do to help.
I went back on it and for a week I have had stomach discomfort, bloating and constipation. I don't know if the estrogen is the cause of this or if it's because I am under a lot of stress.
Also, I wanted to add that the bloating i have occurs in my belly button area and not below breastbone/stomach area. How long can bloating last? Could i have gotten some kind of virus?
Not necessarily. Stomach cancer can often have negative blood work (except you may be anemic). However it is much much more likely that you have something like an ulcer causing the black specks. Stomach cancer is very rare! How old are you?
My best friend has been battling ovarian cancer for over 3 years. She is on her second round of chem. Lately she has the feeling that her stomach is full. This seems to be strongest right after chemo and ther feeling goes away after about 1 1/12 weeks. Is this a sign that the stomach is filling with fluid and that she is getting worst? Her doctors says there is nothing there thanks!
Does anyone know what the pain of stomach cancer feels like...sharp, dull, location, constant or intermittant? Any input would be greatly appreciated.
I had upper bloating which turned out to be related to ovarian cancer. If this seems like a possibility, good to do CT scan and CA125 blood test.
I had a CBC count, thyroid blood test (don't remember the exact name), and Metabolic panel done with normal results. Could I have stomach cancer with a normal CBC count? Are my symptoms really even stomach cancer symptoms? If not, what else could this be? I'm seeing my doctor on wednesday, but until then, I would like to figure out the possibilities.
Hi, How are you? What other symptoms are present? Stomach cancer may indeed present with indigestion and stomach discomfort, bloated feeling after eating, mild nausea, loss of appetite and heartburn. The exact cause of stomach cancer is unknown, but factors such as gender, genetics, geography, medical issues including H.
However, just this January, I've been starting to feel stomach pains whenever I don't eat, and even if I eat, I still feel those pains. I didn't have a clue by that time that it was gas pains, it was only until March that I really, really became bloated that I finally knew that it was a gas problem. I suddenly gained weight, and no matter how many or little I eat, I still get bloated. I tried taking digestive enzymes and betaine hydrochloride, but it doesn't seem to do the trick.
I have been battling with stomach problem over 3 years now, went to my GI doctor did all kind of tests started with blood test, to upper endoscopy and gallbladder everything came back normal! My GI doctor told me I have an IBS problem… The problem initially was bloating and pain on the upper of my stomach, my bowel movement was regular, and I consider my diet intake is healthy. The issue slowly progressed to slow bowel movement, bloating and pain with fatigue that lingers sometimes entire day!!
II must emphisaize that there was NO PAIN or discomfort during all this. Just bloating 24 hrs a day. No stomach acid in throoat or anything else then about 2 months ago one day the bloating was a little more severe than usual. I noticed sum discomfort. But I still decide to go for my jog that night. Immedately after was when the following started and has stayed the same for 2 months- that night my waist size ballooned to 40. meaning I am 9 inches over my normal size.
3 weeks ago I started having problems with bloating and a feeling of fullness in my stomach below the belly button. Thought it might be constipation, my lower back started hurting but every time I would have a bowel movement the back pain would go away. Then a week ago the back pain wasn't being relieved by the bowel movement nor was the bloating or full feeling. I went to the chiropractor and he has helped with most of the back pain but I still feel like my stomach is full.
I sometimes had indigestions off and on and experience burning sensation in my stomach, the symptoms get worse if I'm facing anxiety. I also had stomach bloating if too full or continuously been eating off and on for a day. I burp very often before and after food. Sometimes I can feel the gas in my throat and after having American breakfast in the morning, when I burp in the afternoon, I can still smell the food.
Very simple - are you bloated all the time or do you just bloat after eating during the day, then deflate overnight? When I first started the bloating I thought it was potty problems. But nope, that was working well. Then I figured it had to do with my goofy heart, just some fluid retention that I piddled out overnight. I mentioned it to my doctor (the swollen feet and ankles, hands and tummy). That's when I found out about my little cystic friend. Ick. Anyway, just wondering.
I went to see my physician in October for abdominal pain, bloating, and naseau that I thought was related to my menstrual cramps. After trying two different forms of birth control pills to help the symptoms my doctor finally decided I needed to have a laparoscopy to see if I had any tumors or endometriosis. They couldn't find anything and finally took me off of the pill because it made my period very irregular.
Another consideration would be imaging the abdomen. Sometimes, there are rare cases of ovarian cancer that can lead to unexplained bloating. A CT scan or ultrasound would be helpful to exclude this possibility.
