I had a Hysterectomy over 7 years ago, can it be ovarian cancer?

I am 39 years old. I had a Hysterectomy over 7 years ago. My uterus and all of cervix was removed and ovaries left behind. I had this because of two reasons 1:) major issues with heavy pain and bleeding. Then… 2.) I was do with severe high grade precancerous cells which ended up being the decideibg factor for doc to do the procedure. For well over 6months I have had various issues… increased urination, abdominal pain and bloating. Severe unintentional weight loss (30+pounds in 6 months. Nausea, feel full after eating, not much of an appetite. Occasional pain during sex. (Just started) and SEVERE lower back pain that’s comes and goes and length of time it last varies from each episode to on and off a couple hours to several days of constant lower back pain that brings me to tears at times. My question is: could this be ovarian cancer?
Nothing u can tell me that can be any scarier than the internet itself, so please just be completely honest and forth coming.

Age: 39
Medications: Norvasc

  1. Not all problems are cancer and ovarian cancer is somewhat rare. IBS (irritable bowel syndrome), a urinary tract infection, incontinence, endometriosis or pre-menstrual syndrome may have the some of the same symptoms as you are experiencing now. The fact that you have had a hysterectomy and are probably careful and worried as to potential cancer makes you more aware of the risk. Of course, some of your symptoms are symptoms related to possible ovarian cancer…but it may not be ovarian cancer but some other problem.. Get tested.

  2. Hi.
    Thanks for the query..

    It looks like urinary tract infection and at times frequent urination is also a sign of high blood sugar levels.
    Although some symptoms may be similar in different diseases or conditions but you should not directly think of cancer..
    You should consult a Physician and get evaluated and a thorough clinical examination, an Ultrasound and if needed Endoscopy can be done to rule out the cause so that exact cause can be ruled out and treated accordingly..

    Hope this helps..
