I've had pain in my left pelvic groin area on & off for 4 years. I also have had constipation. I'm worried about having ovarian ca as my mothers mom had it at age 43. Recently, the pain is more pronounced as well as the constipation. I have some cramping on my left leg as well. Since I am now newly pregnant (1st baby at 41), I suppose this can be due to my pregnancy in part. I've had ultrasounds & my ovaries look okay. I don't know if there is anything else I can do to make sure it's not cancer. Any suggestions? My cousin was just diagnosed at 45 with advanced ovarian ca so it is really on my mind now. It seems as though there is no good test to detect it early. Any suggestions appreciated. My prayers are with all of you, and your challenges that lie ahead.
