Modified Pap tests can show early warning signs of ovarian cancer

April 8, 2018

In a new study reported today, using a longer brush to collect cells from the lining of the uterus during a pap smear allowed researchers to identify endometrial cancer in 93% of the cases and ovarian cancer in 45% of the cases. When they added a blood test to the ovarian cancer screening, they were able to detect 63% of ovarian cancers. This incredible discovery brings hope especially for victims of ovarian cancer, called the “silent killer” because it is often not detected until the late stages.

It is still important that doctors and labs make sure to read these tests carefully so they do not miss the abnormal cells.  If you had a Pap smear that was misread at an Army, Navy or Air Force lab, our lawyers can help.  Contact us at 1-877-695-8757 (24/7), e-mail us at LawHelp@militarymedicalmalpractice.com or fill out the short form on the right side of this page.
