How can I distinguish symptoms of ovarian cancer from possible gastrointestinal conditions (with similar symptoms)? I have been told that ovarian cancer is sometimes misdiagnosed as a gastrointestinal disorder.

The symptoms of ovarian cancer are vague and can include GI symptoms. In order to fully work up symptoms, imaging (CT scan) and GI assessment (often a colonoscopy and sometimes an EGD) are often recommended. Occasionally a diagnostic laparoscopy is considered if symptoms such as pelvic/abdominal pain persist.
