Diagnostic Tests for Ovary symptoms

Diagnostic Test list for Ovary symptoms:

The list of diagnostic tests mentioned in various sources as used in the diagnosis of Ovary symptoms includes:

  • Physical examination
    • Manual vaginal examination to examine for masses, tenderness or enlarged uterus. If a mass around the ovaries or fallopian tubes is felt may suggest salpingo-oophoritis (infection of the ovaries and fallopian tubes), endometriosis with a cyst, malignancy ovarian tumor or ectopic pregnancy
  • Blood tests
    • Full blood count and ESR
    • Electrolytes
    • Thyroid function test
    • Pregnancy test, if suspect an ectopic pregnancy
    • FSH, LH, estrogen and progesterone to determine the presence of pituitary or ovarian causes of failure to ovulate. Day 21 progesterone levels allow assessment of ovulation
    • Prolactin level
    • Tumor markers such as CA 125, HCG and alpha fetoprotein may assist in diagnosis and management of malignant ovarian tumor
  • Radiological investigations
    • Pelvic ultrasound, if there is an enlarged uterus, fallopian tube or ovarian mass found on physical examination or if suspect ectopic pregnancy
    • CT or MRI of the pituitary fossa (if suspect prolactinoma as the cause of failure to ovulate and infertility)
  • Laparoscopy may be needed
  • Exploratory laparotomy may be the only way to make a diagnosis in the case of a pelvic mass
