Customer Question
of my exam. I...
My doctor schedules a transvaginal ultrasound yearly as part of my exam. I had some cysts in the past but am now post menopausal. I don't have any abnormal paps. I have a small fibroid that I don't feel. I was never on the pill, but I had 2 children and breast fed them each one year and was told by my previous ob/gyn that I am at average risk for Ovarian cancer. I have been told this is not a good way to screen for Ovarian Cancer. This test scares me. Should I just find another ob/gyn?
I got my first period at age 15.
My last at 52.

You should find another ob/gyn. As your previous gyn mentioned, there are not no screening tests for ovarian cancer.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
