Investigations

Investigations for Diagnosis and Staging

Ultrasound, CA-125 and biopsy help in confirmation of diagnosis, whereas, imaging tests (CT/MRI/PET) are required to stage the disease.

Tumor Markers for Various Subtypes

CA-125 is the tumor marker for epithelial ovarian cancer, Inhibin A/B is for sex cord stromal tumor, and AFP, beta HCG and LDH for germ cell tumors of ovary.

Tumor Markers for Germ Cell Tumors

Very high levels of beta HCG may be seen in choriocarcinoma, so is AFP in endodermal sinus or yolk sac tumors. LDH may be elevated in any subtype. Embronal carccinoma may have any one or three tumor marker(s) elevated.

Staging

FIGO Stage I and II

FIGO (International Federation of Gynecological Oncologists) Staging is the staging system used for endometrial cancer. It helps in disease prognostication and deciding an appropriate treatment strategy. It is explained in the images below.
