How is ovarian cancer diagnosed? What definition is found from CT scan or ultrasound? Can these tests reveal what kind of cyst and whether or not the cyst is benign or cancerous?

Ovarian cancer is diagnosed using different types of testing, along with a discussion with your doctor regarding symptoms and family history. You can read about the different diagnostic tests at: American Cancer Society (ACS) Ovarian Cancer Diagnosis.

Yes, diagnostic testing means that a specific diagnosis can be confirmed, whether or not a mass is found to be benign or cancerous.

Have you, or a loved one, been diagnosed with ovarian cancer?
