The Risk of Ovarian Cancer Algorithm, ROCA® is used to assess a woman' risk of developing an ovarian cancer

The ROCA® test results are divided into three categories: normal, intermediate or elevated. A normal score means you’ll be advised to have another test after a year, while an intermediate score advises that you have a second test after three months.

However, if you have an elevated score, your Consultant will recommend a transvaginal ultrasound scan of your ovaries, an assessment and screening for CA125. If you have ovarian cancer, you may have higher levels of CA125 n your bloodstream. This can be detected through a blood test.

According to ROCA® and the National Institute for Health Research, the test can improve patients’ survival rates and outcomes through identifying early-stage ovarian cancer.
