Early Ovarian Cancer Detection with a Liquid Biopsy

This test blows all other options out of the water

Basically, this two-step process is able to analyze living cancer cells from a simple blood test. The technology is promising as it has some advantages over two currently used tests to detect ovarian cancer. The CA125 blood test is another blood test frequently used, but it's not as accurate as Angle's Pelvic Mass Triage. The CA125 levels in the blood can be affected by a lot of other conditions that are totally unrelated to ovarian cancer. Ultrasound is also another common test used to evaluate for ovarian cancer. However, there is no way for the doctor to know whether a mass seen on ultrasound is cancerous or not.
