Ultrasound Beats Blood Test for Gauging Ovarian Cancers: Study

added.

Sherry Salway Black, executive director of the Ovarian Cancer National Alliance, called the new study results exciting. "It gives more information, more evidence that a transvaginal ultrasound can be effective under these circumstances."

Still, she said, the blood test might prove to have some benefit. "It may not be the best stand-alone diagnostic tool. This [study] appears to say transvaginal ultrasound is definitely better." But the study authors did find that CA-125 levels in women found to have cancer were higher for postmenopausal women than premenopausal women, for instance. And such details, Black said, might prove valuable.

Meanwhile, a study from Boston's Brigham and Women's Hospital has found that regular consumption of foods containing the flavonoid kaempferol, including nonherbal tea and broccoli, was associated with a reduced risk of ovarian cancer. The study, funded by the National Cancer Institute and published in the Nov. 15 issue of the International Journal of Cancer, also found a decreased risk in women who consumed large amounts of the flavonoid luteolin, found in carrots, peppers and cabbage.

"This is good news, because there are few lifestyle factors known to reduce a woman's risk of ovarian cancer," first author Margaret Gates, a research fellow at the hospital, said in a prepared statement. "Although additional research is needed, these findings suggest that consuming a diet rich in flavonoids may be protective."

"Other flavonoid-rich foods, such as onions, beans and kale, may also decrease ovarian cancer risk, but the number of women who frequently consumed these foods was not large enough to clearly evaluate these associations. More research is needed," concluded Gates, who is also a research fellow at the Harvard School of Public Health.
