    DescriptionA simple blood test that can be given by GPs could help diagnose ovarian cancer faster and more accurately, particularly for women under the age of 50 researchers have found.

    University of Manchester scientists investigated whether a type of protein found in the blood, called human epididymis protein 4 (HE4), could help identify ovarian cancer more accurately and save other women from unnecessary and often invasive tests and procedures, such as physical examinations and biopsies.
