    Pls help! Ovarian cancer fear

    So Iíve had pelvic pain and bloating on and off for some time now. I had 2 transvaginal ultrasounds last year would this have picked up anything unusual? Or could it be missed? The lady doing the scan said my bowels were very active but I worry that something could be missed?

    I'm going through the same thing. I have a telephone appointment with my Dr tomorrow. I had a pelvic ultrasound but it was about three years ago. I think they definitely would have picked up if anything was amiss.

    Yes it would have picked something up Iím sure.
    I had a cyst picked up on mine 18 months ago. Iím also suffering from pelvic pain & bloating again so Iíve spoken to my gp and am waiting for an appointment for another tv ultrasound.

    If youíve been having these symptoms for a while particularly during the time you had your last scans last year, Iíd say it would be very unlikely there was anything there that they missed. Easy for me to say, but it sounds reassuring. If they said you had quite active bowels, perhaps it is just IBS.
