Ovarian Cancer Screening Does Not Improve Outcomes

Ovarian cancer screening does not improve outcomes (UKCTOCS)

Clinical Question:
Do women who are screened for ovarian cancer have better health
outcomes than women who are not screened?

Bottom Line:
In this study (with methods that are biased in favor of the intervention), women who are
screened for ovarian cancer are unlikely to experience any mortality benefit. (LOE = 1b-)
