2. Loss of Appetite, Weight Loss
Often, serious bloating comes with a diminishing appetite and unexplained weight loss. Since the ovaries are close to the stomach and intestines, a growing tumor can begin to press on these organs, making you feel full even after a small snack.
Tumors also produce hormones that can interfere with your metabolism and appetite, leading to sudden and significant changes; even your favourite foods can be unappealing, and things can start to taste terrible.
