We cannot make the diagnosis of early stages of using only common symptoms that are not specific. Physician will conduct a physical examination that may show a pelvic mass or ascites. Several laboratory tests are useful. Pelvic examination and imaging (CT and transvaginal ultrasound) are essential. Definitive diagnosis is by biopsy ovaries surgically or laparoscopically followed by pathological examination. An examination of abdominal fluid effusion helps to know the cancer has spread outside the ovary.
