US is good test: The transvaginal US is a good test for looking at the ovaries. If there were a mass there they should be able to see it on the US. If you have ovarian cancer in your family and you are concerned, you could ask your doctor to order a CA-125 blood test. This test is elevated in ovarian cancer.
