Hello Doctor 


What are the possible causes of bloating and pelvic pain besides constipation? Despite efforts to alleviate symptoms, they persist, along with bladder discomfort and a burning sensation near the ovary. Any advice?

Reason for bloating and pelvic pain:

 2. Ovarian cancer often goes unnoticed until late stages due to subtle symptoms and expansive space for tumor growth.

 3. Considering the symptoms, urgent gynecologist consultation is vital.




 1. Immediate medical examination by a gynecologist is necessary.

 2. Ovarian cancer diagnosis requires thorough evaluation, including imaging and possibly biopsy.

 3. Prompt treatment improves prognosis; early detection is crucial for successful management.
