Finding ovarian cancer early

When ovarian cancer is found and treated early, the chances of successful treatment are better. Get regular health checkups and see your doctor if you have any symptoms or are worried about your health.

You may need a personal plan for testing if you have a higher than average risk. Talk to your doctor about tests that can help find ovarian cancer early, including the following:

  • a pelvic exam
  • transvaginal ultrasound
  • cancer antigen 125 (CA125) test
