Very often there are no symptoms in the early stages of fallopian tube cancer, and it may be found by chance during a routine gynaecological check-up or during surgery for another condition.
However, if you notice any of the following, you should see your doctor:
- increasing swelling of the lower abdomen without weight gain elsewhere
- increasing swelling of the lower abdomen that does not improve with diet or exercise
- a lump or mass in the abdomen, especially the lower abdomen
- lower abdominal/pelvic pain that does not settle quickly and simply
- feelings of pressure on the bowel or bladder, and a feeling that the bowel or bladder cannot be completely emptied
- abnormal bleeding or discharge from the vagina, especially bleeding after menopause.
