What are the symptoms of fallopian tube cancer?


There are usually no symptoms in the early stages of fallopian tube cancer. 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:

•      pain, swelling, pressure or a lump in your belly[2] pelvis or back

•      needing to urinate (wee) often or urgently

•      feeling like you can’t completely empty your bowel or bladder

•      loss of appetite or feeling full quickly

•      gastrointestinal problems such as gas, bloating, constipation, indigestion or heartburn

•      tiredness

•      abnormal bleeding or watery discharge from the vagina

There are other conditions that may cause these symptoms, not just fallopian tube cancer. If you experience any of these symptoms, it is important that you discuss them with a doctor.
