Ovarian cancer

Ovarian cancer is the fifth most common cause of cancer-related deaths among UK women and accounts for 5% of all cancer deaths in women worldwide.

Unfortunately, it often doesn’t show any symptoms until later on – but a test for ovarian cancer can help to identify the early signs, particularly when the risks are higher. We carry out blood tests to help catch the disease before it grows, and our cervical cancer smear test helps to detect abnormal cells early.

CA 125 blood test

  • Detection of the CA 125 protein in your blood may indicate the presence of ovarian cancer
  • Early detection can increase the rates of survival as only a third of the 6,800 women diagnosed survive for five years. Early detection can increase the survival rate to 90% of women

HE4 (HE4 and ROMA)

HE4 is a new marker in patients with ovarian cancer. (This test is not currently available on the NHS).

ROMA – a risk of ovarian malignancy algorithm classifies patients as being at high or low risk for malignant disease using both the CA 125 and HE4 results. It estimates the risk of finding ovarian cancer during surgery.

When combined with CA 125, this significantly raises the level of sensitivity for the detection.
