Cancer Diagnostics: Ovarian Cancer Testing

Because there isn't a test that screens for ovarian cancer, the best way to detect it is to have regular women's health exams. Symptoms include bloating, pelvic or abdominal pain, feeling full quickly when eating, and frequent urination. 


If an ovarian mass is found, the OVA1® test or the ROMATM test may be used before surgery to help assess whether or not the mass is cancerous.

If surgery is performed and you are then diagnosed with ovarian cancer, your doctor may use HE4 Monitoring or the CA 125 test to monitor you during and after treatment.
