Caption: Secondary navel cancer. Close-up of the navel (umbilicus, or belly button) of a 67 year old woman showing swelling due to cancer. This started as ovarian cancer, but it spread to a new site (metastasis) at the navel. Ovarian cancer is fairly common in elderly women, and has an insidious manner of growth. It rarely causes any symptoms until it is too widespread to be treatable. It can cause swelling, nausea, vomiting and bleeding from the vagina. If the cancer is caught early, it can be treated by surgical removal of the affected area, often combined with anti-cancer drugs. If the cancer has spread extensively, however, the prognosis is not good.
