5:13 pm
chances of surviving ovarian cancer are excellent -- if it's detected at an early stage. the problem is -- it's rarely caught early. there either aren't any symptoms ... or they're incredibly vague... like bloating and abdominal pain. there is a blood test that measures an ovarian tumor marker called "ca- 125." but experts recommend against it because it's never been shown to lower the death rate and has too many false positives. now -- for the first time -- a major study of more than 200-thousand women in the u-k has found screening for ovarian cancer is beneficial and can save lives. the researchers used ca-125 in a new way -- a mathematical calculation that accounted for risk factors like the patients' age ... and then tracked how ca-125 levels changed over time. they found the test helped reduce the number of women dying from the disease by about 20-percent. you won't see this blood test in your doctor's office any time soon. doctors need several more years of research to make sure it works the way this study suggests it can.
