Diagnosis of a gynaecological cancer may involve a number of tests, including:
- a physical examination, including a pelvic examination
- a cervical screening test
- blood tests, such as a CA-125 test
- imaging tests – these may include a transvaginal ultrasound, a computed tomography (CT) scan, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) or positron emission tomography (PET) scans
- A PET scan, which includes injection of a weak radioactive substance into your body to show up cancer spots
- taking a tissue sample (biopsy) for examination under a microscope.
