Private Ovarian Cancer Screening - Help Detect Cancer Early

MyWebDoctor offers a wide range of private medical services - available for everyone at low prices

Ovarian Cancer Screening

Ovarian Cancer is a silent killer and there is no current NHS screening programme.

Take things into your own hands and find out the figures early.

Don’t wait for symptoms – late stage cancer causes pain, bloating, weight loss, funny bleeding – and if you have these see your GP as soon as possible.

BUT – catch cancer early BEFORE it causes the symptoms.

CA125 Blood Test

A one-off high reading can indicate an urgent problem with your ovaries.

Many women are having regular texts to keep a chart and watch for any subtle rise in this cancer blood test.

Ultrasound Scan

This can be done is response to a high blood test result.

Some women opt to have a yearly scan, just to be doubly sure.

Combination

Three monthly blood testing.

And a yearly scan to have a good look at the ovaries.

What Our Patients Are Saying

Straight from the horse’s mouth , as it were…

 

My mother died of ovarian cancer and nobody knew until it was all too late. Until the NHS introduces this as a regular screening programme, this is a great low cost way of having the extra reassurance that nothing is quietly growing inside.

GK

 

I have a blood test done every three months and it gives me the peace of mind that if the level rises I need to get it checked out straight away. I have heard so many people dying of this problem and this just gives me that extra reassurance.

DB

 

The blood test is easy, just warm your finger up and drop a few drops into the little tube. The scan is arranged by Dr Webberley at my local private hospital and couldn’t be easier.

CH

When diagnosed at its earliest stage, 9 in 10 women with ovarian cancer will survive their disease for five years or more, compared with less than 5 in 100 of women when diagnosed at the latest stage.

Frequently Asked Questions

Why is ovarian cancer such a problem?

The ovaries sit within the abdomen where there is lots of spare space. This means that if a small cancer starts growing on an ovary, it can get very big before it causes any symptoms. The earlier we catch cancer the more chance there is of having treatment to cure it.

Why can't my GP do this on the NHS?

The NHS doesn’t currently have a screening programme for ovarian cancer. This means that if you have symptoms – such as pain, bloating, funny bleeding, then your GP can arrange these tests. If you don’t have any symptoms then you can’t – and you may miss the chance to catch a cancer while it is very small.

What is CA125?

CA125 is called a tumour marker and is produced by some ovarian cancers. If you have a cancer growing on your ovary then this can show in the blood test. One-off levels are important, but so are any subtle changes from a previous level.

Do I need a scan?

The blood test gives us a very good idea, but then combined with an ultrasound scan – you get a real picture of the ovaries and can detect small changes which may be cancerous.
