  •  Yes, that's so. Recently there was news (4+ / 0-)

    about an innovation in Pap smears that holds hope for early detection of both endometrial and ovarian cancer. Here's one good description of the advance.
    It definitely would make a difference for ovarian cancer patients, who as you say usually have very late diagnosis.

    Such a test would also have helped me, since I had a routine Pap smear that of course detected nothing, only a couple of months before my bleeding started but a good year before I got a diagnosis at stage IIIC2.

    I will be watching this one closely.

    Some DKos series & groups worth your while: Black Kos, Native American Netroots, KosAbility, Monday Night Cancer Club. If you'd like to join the Motor City Kossacks, send me a Kosmail.
