High-Risk Ovarian Cancer Screening Clinic

The Gynecologic Oncology Center holds weekly ovarian cancer screenings for women at high risk for developing the disease. 

The ovarian cancer screening exam involves:

  • A gynecologic physical examination
  • An assessment of your medical and family history
  • Transvaginal ultrasound, a radiologic procedure that provides a picture of the ovaries and uterus
  • A CA-125 blood test, which may indicate the presence of ovarian cancer
  • Discussion of your ovarian cancer risk
  • Discussion of how you should be followed

Genetic counseling is available, and genetic testing can be arranged after speaking with the genetic counselor. 

You will have three appointments:

  • Physician visit in the clinic
  • Transvaginal ultrasound
  • CA-125 blood test

Your health insurance will be billed for each appointment.

Some patients are followed every six months or annually in the ovarian cancer screening clinic, along with a transvaginal ultrasound and CA-125 blood test. Some patients choose to have their ovaries removed, depending on age, childbearing status and cancer risk.
