The course of nature and location of abdominal pain can change. 
2. Bloating as ascites, abdominal mass and secondary dyspepsia, intestinal obstruction and other factors, patients can have varying degrees of abdominal distention. Severe symptoms can affect eating, even breathing difficulties.

Ascites is the abnormal collection of fluid in the abdomen; when it is caused by cancer, it is referred to as malignant ascites.

A reduction in the number of red blood cells to below normal; this forces the heart and other organs to work harder to get oxygen where it's needed. 
Infection is the most common cause of fever in cancer patients, but tumor cells can also produce fever-causing agents. A bowel obstruction may also cause fever.
