I see.

OVA1 minimizes the uncertainty of the pre-surgical adnexal and uses five biomarkers and the patient’s menopausal status to try to aid in the detection of ovarian cancer

at your age of 36, I would not stress about ovarian cancer.

high ova1 test may not mean you have cancer.

yes, endometriosis can cause high ova1 testing results.
