Possible To Check For Ovarian Cancer While Pregnant?

Yes, you can get a transvaginal ultrasound while pregnant; they do it all the time to see how the pregnancy is developing. And yes, you should get it looked at right away. The symptoms of ovarian cancer are pretty vague, so lots of other things could be going on. You should start getting good prenatal care anyway, and in that context evaluate your overall health.

Do you have ovarian cancer in your family (or breast cancer?) I would ask family members--it will help you assess your risk.

Certainly ultrasound is helpful in your case. This will aid your doctor to the proper diagnosis and treatment course.Treatment is similar to non-pregnant cases of Ovarian cancer & for some bioethical issues (you are pregnant) the age of gestation also matters. But before that the ultrasound will characterize what type of mass it is that defines it as malignant or benign.The character of these masses are graded and scored.Moreover doppler scans are also requested.The goldstandard , however that will document such will be a histopathologic report.Now, this entails you to see more of your perinatologist and a gynecologic oncologist .They will give you a hand...Hope I helped
