Symptoms Alone Don't Spot Ovarian Cancer Early
Date:1/28/2010

ctors if their symptoms are persistent or are clearly not how they usually feel.

"We talk a lot about symptom awareness, but what this study shows is we still need a reliable early detection test," Tenenbaum said. "The symptoms index is the best we have right now for early detection. You need to know what's normal for you. If it's new for you and you're not feeling good, we want you to have good access to medical care and to avail yourself of it."

Meanwhile, scientists continue to experiment with better detection methods. According to a study in the February issue of the American Journal of Roentgenology, researchers are working on developing better early-stage cancer detection through the use of contrast-enhanced ultrasound combined with blood tests that look for tumor biomarkers.
