Hi, my name is Kim. I'm 23, I just had a colonscopy because I've had many symptoms that made me fear I had colon cancer, this didn't turn out to be the case, and the colon looked fine. Some of them are pain in my life side in the pelvic area, it hurts when I strain to go, gas, and sometimes only be able to go a little. I had no idea these symptoms could possibly be ovarian cancer until I looked them up. Normally I have a good apetite but last couple weeks I haven't I have a little bit to eat and I feel full. Sometimes I do feel like I'm having bloating and pants are harder to fit, which I hear is big symptoms. I'm going to my GYN in a couple weeks, I've always had my pelvic exams yearly and PAP smears, but I hear this wouldn't be enough to detect it...any thoughts, am I too young for ovarian cancer, should I be worried about this?

  • This could also mean an ovarian cyst, but go and find out of course. Take steps, but don't worry until you know the truth. The symptoms appear to be very similar.
