Petition Women should be regularly screened with a blood test called CA125 to detect for ovarian cancer
My Mother has recently been diagnosed with primary ovarian cancer and secondary in her peritoneum. If women were regularly screened with the blood test CA125 they would be able to detect early signs like they screen for cervical cancer and mammograms for breast cancer. Ovarian cancer is quite a silent cancer and when women get any symptoms it is usually more advanced. Being detected early would get women treated quicker and prevent deaths .
