Ovarian Cancer Detection Concerns By the FDA

Women and their providers are warned that ovarian cancer screening is not simple, not very accurate yet, and should never replace continued vigilance with respect to symptoms. Ovarian cancer is the quiet cancer: subtle signs are often present and can bring a case to detection. Women who have screening for ovarian cancer are warned by the FDA that there are some tests with false claims and the tests should not be overly interpreted. At Women's Health Practice we want our patients to know that there are ways to prevent ovarian cancer, and for those at risk, we encourage medical discussion to see if in fact you are doing all you can to prevent ovarian cancer. There are still women who can benefit by screening, and evaluating your screening process as new information becomes available is important.
