  • There are no recommendations for screening ovarian cancer in asymptomatic women although better outcome is associated with early diagnosis[1]
  • Ovarian cancer the fifth most common cause of cancer-related mortality in women
  • 75% of women with ovarian cancer are diagnosed in an advanced stage
  • Ovarian cancer is the most lethal gynecological cancer[2]
  • The reason of increased mortality and late detection of ovarian cancer in its advanced stage is because the screening systems that are being used have poor or limited sensitivity and specificity[1].
  • Biomarkers from peritoneal fluid can be used as a mean of ealy detection of ovarian cancer but this is stil an emerging proof.
  • Examples of screening and diagnostic methods for ovarian cancer include:
    • elvic examination
    • Cancer antigen 125 (CA 125) tumor marker
    • Transvaginal ultrasound (TVU)
    • Multimarker panels and bioinformatic analysis of proteomic patterns[2]
