Your Ovaries

Checing 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.
