High-Risk Ovarian Cancer Program

Your risk of developing ovarian cancer may be higher if you carry a specific mutation in your genes.

High-risk women benefit from screening and close monitoring to diagnose ovarian cancer early, when it's more treatable.

If you're concerned about the risk of developing ovarian cancer, the High-Risk Ovarian Cancer Program at Magee-Womens Hospital of UPMC offers the following evaluation methods and recommendations:

  • An ovarian cancer risk assessment
  • Screening tests
  • Genetic counseling and testing
  • Education about ovarian cancer risk and potential implications for family members 
  • A personalized surveillance plan
  • Prevention strategies

You also have the option to participate in ovarian cancer research studies to take advantage of the most recent treatment options available.
