Yes, ovarian cancer is the most fatal cancer to women cause it's hard to diagnose, usually once the person is diagnose the person is already in a advanced stage.However if in doubt there are blood tests that detects the ovarian cancer.

The symptoms are virtually the same.

They are easily distinguished by tests.

I dont know, I had cysts really bad when I was younger. They did ultrasounds and told me they were cysts and thats what caused my horrendous pain. I guess if they werent easily identifiable they would have done more tests.
