I am a 51 yr old with post menopausal bleeding and many other symptoms of ovarian cancer - family history, low abdomen pain, severe back pain, Ascites, gastro int issues, bloating, nausea, constipation, Reduced appetite, weight changes, severe fatigue (already low immunity), frequent urinating, recent issues with pudendal nerve impingement causing vibration, etc. Transvaginal ultrasound could not locate right ovary (I'm sure that's where I left it). Biopsy of endometrium showed no uterine or cervical cancer, but she neglected to feel for ovaries. Dr doesn't feel like I need any further tests but I began bleeding near hemoraging. I've read this is exactly how ovarian cancer can be missed. Should I get a second opinion?
