There is no screening test for ovarian cancer. A Pap test does not screen for ovarian cancer. But you can help change that.
Brian Slomovitz, MD works at The Women's Cancer Center at the Carol G Simon Cancer center. I've met and spoken to Dr Slomovitz about his research, most recently at the ASCO meeting in Chicago in June. Currently, he is running a clinical trial evaluating blood and urine for the screening of ovarian cancer. Post-menopausal women between 50 and 74 with at least one ovary , a health care provider and who has not been under cancer treatment for the past 12 months may participate.
If you fit those criteria will you participate and help find a screening test? Call 973-971-6491 or e-mail Ovarian.Screening@atlantichealth.org

Every Day is a Blessing! Thank you Dr Slomovitz for your research into finding a screening test for ovarian cancer.
