Abdominal Ultrasound

Hello, I have posted on here before, and I am still trying to get some answers for my symptoms. I am wondering if anyone on here has had an abdominal ultrasound when they had the following symptoms and if they did, would it rule out ovarian cancer? The symptoms are bloating, fatigue, fullness from eating, pelvic pain, urinary frequency (with no sign of infection).  My cysts are small, slightly enlarged uterus, slightly thickened endometrium. My gyn does not want to do anything further, my PCP sent me for the abdominal ultrasound, which came back normal. I have scheduled an appointment with a gastroenterologist for next week.  I am wondering if anyone can shed some more light on this and thank you for your help and your patience. You are all a blessing.

The only way to absolutely rule out OVCA is surgery and a path report on the biopsied tissue.  You do have many of the symptoms but then cysts can cause these same  symptoms. I think I would make an appointment with a gyn/oncologist  and have a transvaginal ultra sound and a CA125, altho the blood test is not that realiable.  OVCA is rare but they are advising any woman that manifests these symptoms for 2 to 3 weeks to be checked.  did you gyn do a pelvic exam?

My gyn did a pelvic exam back in April of this year. In June and July, I had transvaginal ultrasounds which found the small cysts, the slightly enlarged uterus and the thickened endometrium.  I requested the CA125, which came back at 24.  My gyn does not think anything further should be done. I still have all the symptoms. I was wondering since the abdominal ultrasound came back normal, should I agree with my gyn. I am concerned because my symptoms have not gone away. Thanks for your help!
