Unfortunately, Pap smears are not used in diagnosing ovarian cancer. They are for cervical cancer. The only diagnostic methods for ovarian cancer in general use are CA-125 (a blood test) and transvaginal ultrasound, but they are not so great at finding ovarian cancer, and they are not recommended as a screening test because they don't work well enough.
