Cancer symptoms: 'Frequent' sensations warning of a growing tumour inside of the body


“Other symptoms” of ovarian cancer:

  • Changes in bowel habit (eg diarrhoea or constipation)
  • Extreme fatigue (feeling very tired)
  • Unexplained weight loss
  • Any bleeding after the menopause should always be investigated by a GP.

Symptoms of ovarian cancer will be frequent (happening more than 12 times in one month), persistent, and are “not normal for you”.

Testing for ovarian cancer

The NHS certified that a blood test and are a scan are “usually done first”.

Other tests might involve a needle biopsy, where a small sample of cells from the ovaries are removed, and a laparoscopy.
