What is the diagnostic process for ovarian cancer in absence of reliable screening methods?

At the time, ovarian cancer cannot be precisely diagnosed after a single test, as the risk of false-positive or false-negative results is very high. A series of different tests and examinations, such as the CA-125 blood test and transvaginal ultrasound, should be undergone by the patient for a reliable result.

These procedures also need to be repeated at regular intervals of time in order to observe any chances that may occur in the results. This way, the specialist will be able to make a careful comparison and assign a reliable and accurate diagnosis, confirming or infirming the presence of ovarian cancer, as well as its stage, if the disease is indeed occurring.

We wanted a resource where people who are looking for better help can find it, because one of the issues that I have found is that the diagnosis takes a little bit, some people don’t know if they are diagnosed or not. This is something that it is important enough, that is why I wanted to put the information together.
