Role of screening in ovarian cancer   

       Screening is the term used for evaluation of patients for a disease before it causes any symptoms. There are no good screening tests available for ovarian cancer. CAT scan of abdomen, MRI of the abdomen abdominal and vaginal ultrasound and blood level of a tumor marker known as CA-125 are some times   used as screening tests in women with very high risk of development of ovarian cancer. Because of the fact that none of the available screening tests are efficient in detection of early stage ovarian cancer routine screening for ovarian cancer in women with average risk of ovarian cancer is not recommended.
