Checking For Ovarian Cancer
At Any Age
If you have a family history and are at a higher risk of developing ovarian cancer, your health professional may recommend regular screenings with pelvic imaging and a specific blood test that measures your level of a protein called CA125.
Here Is What You Can Do Now
- Pay attention to your body, and know what is normal for you.
- If you notice any changes in your body that are not normal talk to your health professional to rule out any problems.
- Ask your health professional if you should have a diagnostic test or a CA-125 blood test if you have any unexplained signs or symptoms. These tests sometimes help find or rule out ovarian cancer.
