If you or your doctor is concerned that you might have ovarian cancer, there is no single test that will tell you for sure.
To gauge your odds of ovarian cancer, doctors run a test of your blood -- or sometimes saliva -- called the BRCA gene test.
The CA-125 test looks for certain proteins in your blood. Ovarian cancer can be the reason for these proteins.
While experts are constantly looking for better ways to screen and test for ovarian cancer, they haven’t had much success.
An ovarian cancer diagnosis can feel overwhelming. The good news is, there are things you can do on your path to recovery.
