In brief: CA-125 , ultrasound

Routine screening is not recommended on people with average risk.
Family history is a strong risk factor. In these patients ca-125 (it is a tumor marker checked in blood) also transvaginal ultrasound can help early diagnosis.

In brief: Biopsy

While imaging (eg, pelvic ultrasound) or laboratory tests (eg, ca-125) may be suspicious for ovarian cancer, only a biopsy can definitively diagnosis ovarian cancer.
