Ovarian Cancer or just Spastic Colon
Hi

About 3 month's ago i was batteling with severe backache, where the dr stated that it was an infection in my kidneys and put me on atibiotics. It went well for a while but now for the last 2 months i've been experiencing bloating accompanied with pressure in my abdomin and lower back and extreme tiredness (so bad that i almost fell asleep at work). Now for 2 weeks i've began to get abdominal cramps on top of all this . With that something i never had is a dark brown/ black discharge right after my period. I've read a lot of information and now saw that i have most of the symptoms for ovarian cancer, but could it be merely a spastic colon?

It is hard to say without a full history and examination, so you should see your doctor about it.
