This story from the NY Times tells how in the future there may be a test for ovarian cancer short of removing ovaries to biopsy them. I can appreciate how welcome that might be -- 4 years ago, long before my PPC was diagnosed, I was suspected of having ovarian cancer and had a hysterectomy/oophorectomy. Results then were negative. But I understand from my doctors that PPC arises from endometrial tissue, as do uterine & ovarian cancers. So if this kind of testing gets to the clinical stage, maybe younger generations of females will be spared late diagnoses of their illnesses.
