Clinical manifestations

A. Most ovarian cancers are diagnosed between the ages of 40 and 65. Symptoms of early stage disease are often vague. Acute symptoms due to ovarian rupture or torsion are unusual. As a result, 75 to 85 percent of cases of ovarian cancer are advanced at the time of diagnosis. More advanced disease is typically associated with abdominal distention, nausea, anorexia, or early satiety due to the presence of ascites and omental or bowel metastases.

B. Most women have nonspecific symptoms, such as lower abdominal discomfort or pressure, gas, bloating, constipation, irregular menstrual cycles/abnormal vaginal bleeding, low-back pain, fatigue, nausea, indigestion, urinary frequency, or dyspareunia.
