It's great to hear about a new ovarian cancer test that can diagnose more precisely.

Early diagnosis of this aggressive cancer is hard, as symptoms such as bloating are common with other illnesses. The test identifies the type of ovarian cancer and also how aggressive it is. It uses patient information, blood test results and ultrasound scans to make these predictions.

This test promises to cut down on unnecessary and traumatic operations. I think it will really help a lot of people.
