A bloating tummy immediately calls for a change in diet plan, cutting out gluten from the diet, eating probiotic yoghurt or investing more time exercising but never would anyone imagine it to be an important sign of ovarian cancer.
There could be other reasons such as irritable bowel syndrome and pre-menstrual syndrome, but if the pain remains and does not come and go with intermissions, it is necessary that you get it checked out.
Feeling bloated for more than three weeks can indicate ovarian cancer and this calls for immediate intervention by a physician. Other common signs include:

AVOID FRAUD. EAT SMART.
