Ovarian cancer screening
Early detection is vital to surviving ovarian cancer. The UK Markey Cancer Center Ovarian Screening Program was started in 1987 and provides free cancer screenings by transvaginal ultrasound (TVS) to postmenopausal women who are:
- over the age of 50
- over the age of 25 with a documented family history of ovarian cancer.
Directed by John R. van Nagell Jr., MD, the program provides ovarian screenings throughout Kentucky in Lexington, Elizabethtown, Somerset, Prestonsburg, Maysville, Paducah and Greenup.
Screenings are held in the Roach Building at Markey Cancer Center.
For more information about the program, call toll free 800-766-8279 or 859-323-4687.
