Information about early detection of tubal and ovarian cancer
There is no effective screening test for cancer of the ovaries or fallopian tube at present although this is an area of ongoing research. One of the main reasons for this is that many of what were thought to be ovarian cancers we now know developed in the fallopian tubes. These cancers have a great propensity to spread in the pelvis and abdomen. Cancer Australia has developed an information sheet “ Early Detection of Ovarian Cancer” to help explain this.
