Ovarian Cancer Screening

Women can screen for ovarian cancer by undergoing annual pelvic exams, which can help detect any abnormalities or changes to the ovaries as soon as possible. Women who have a higher risk of developing ovarian cancer should be aware of their risk and discuss the best prevention method with their doctor. Early detection is important in achieving effective results from treatment and lowering the number of associated deaths.

While there are ultrasound and other diagnostic procedures that can detect abnormalities within the ovaries, there is no universal screening test for ovarian cancer.
