Regular women’s health exams can help detect ovarian cancer

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.

BRCA Panel Plus

Cancer can be more common in some families than others. The Quest Diagnostics BRCA Panel Plus tests for mutations in genes predominantly associated with breast and ovarian cancer, including BRCA1 and BRCA2.

These tests are available for adults of all ages, but it’s best to talk with your doctor or genetic counselor to decide if genetic testing is right for you. Getting tested can also give important information to your family and can help your family members understand their risk for cancer.
