- Ovarian cancer screening – Although there is currently no method of screening that is able to reliably detect ovarian cancer in its earliest stages, tests such as a rectovaginal pelvic examination and transvaginal ultrasound may help to detect this malignancy.
- Diagnostic testing – For women who are experiencing symptoms of ovarian cancer, Moffitt physicians may conduct a physical examination, imaging tests or blood tests to detect the presence of ovarian cancer.
- Ovarian cancer treatment – At Moffitt’s ovarian cancer center, a combination of surgery and chemotherapy are most often used to treat women with ovarian cancer.
- Supportive care services – Moffitt patients have access to dietitians, social workers, counselors and a number of other supportive care professionals in the same location where they are undergoing cancer treatment.
