qOvarian cancer: its mere mention is shrouded in fear and mystery.... Draped in a cloak of anonymity, ovarian cancer is often called `the disease that whispers.' Diane Sims Roth, herself an ovarian cancer survivor, joins almost one hundred women with their personal anecdotes of their experience with ovarian cancer. Invaluable information is included: symptoms, treatment and prognosis, descriptions of risk factors, diagnostic procedures, drug therapies, radiology, and surgical procedures.qA Pap smear is also done to check for cervical cancera it does not detect ovarian cancer. If a woman is in a high-risk group for ovarian cancer, a couple of other tests may be ordered, such as a transvaginal ultrasound and CAI25 blood test.
