Contralateral ovary, fallopian tubes, peritoneum, liver, lungs, bone and brain are the most common sites. I think the more intriguing question is why you are making the connection? Is there a family history that concerns you? ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
No: Some may offer a ca-125 blood test as a screening for ovarian cancer. Unfortunately, while ca-125 is found in 80-90% of ovarian cancer patients, it is not very specific (meaning it is elevated in a number of conditions) and is not found in early cancers.

The ultimate way to know is surgery to see if it is in fact, a tumor of something else. ...Read more
