The U.S. Preventive Services Task Force does not recommend ovarian cancer screening for asymptomatic women who are not known to have a high-risk hereditary cancer syndrome.
The recommendation is based on four trials including 293,587 participants that evaluated ovarian cancer mortality or psychological outcomes associated with three screening interventions: CA-125 testing alone, CA-125 testing plus transvaginal ultrasound and transvaginal ultrasound alone produced mixed results.
