In brief: Depends.

It is notoriously hard to detect early.
Pelvic ultrasound and family history along with serum ca-125 are some approaches to early detection that have not been particularly effective. Current research is aiming at identifying a serum proteomic signature of early ovarian cancer that can be clinically useful.
