Why would a test that is so needed be so expensive. You know that the poor and low income will be the one's to be ignored because of no insurance or Medicaid and they will die. 1.7% is low only because all women were not tested. I remember years ago when mammogram were prescribed for women over 50, insurance wouldn't cover anyone younger and denied any claims and yet women at 29 were diagnosed and ended up dying.
Like breast cancer all women should have all and any test's that are necessary for their survival.

IMO if the test for prostate cancer is covered then so be the one for ovarian cancer, regardless of the price.

My family history for ovarian cancer includes my mother, one of her sisters, her mother and her great-grandmother and a maternal 1st cousin of mine. I had my ovaries out 5 yrs ago and my sister had a recent hysterectomy. My mother's remaining sister had a hysterectomy years ago, but just had a masectomy. This is good news but,to me, it is not a rare disease. I agree that if a test for prostrate cancer is covered, why shouldn't this test be covered -$1,000 in today'e economy will not allow many women to afford it!

"find a husband, have your babies and have your organs removed."

This is exactly how Western Medicine thinks about human body. For them, human body is a machine, a set of loosely connected organs and systems, and if you take out one part, the rest just continues to clip-clap along. The corollary is that once there is no organ, it cannot catch cancer.

Quite true, but what they do not know is that all organs are represented in our etheric body, in which they exist forever and still can become cancerous. But if there is no organ to which the disease can be attached, then the negative enerygy -- the energy of the illness -- progresses to another part of the body. The part of the body that will be ill can be seen from the medical astrological reading, because the natal chart is the blueprint of the energies one was born with.

You can have your organs removed one by one but it will not make you healthier. So this piece of advice "have your babies and mutilate yourself to the end of your days" is a horrible one. Doctors should solve each case separately, individually, to the best benefit of EACH particular patient.

And so on. Beware of the doctors who only want to operate on you and then let you go.

And before you do, I hasten to add that there are situations in which surgery is justified even astrologically. But the blind advice "have your babies and cut it out" is not acceptable. Would such a doctor do that to his own daughters? Not likely!

I disgree with the statement" have your babies and cut it out" this is not an acceptable answer.
I had a complete hysterectomy in 1997 and stage 3 ovarian cancer in 2004. My tumor was in my lower side and attched itself to the colon and the uter. Thank's to great doctors and proper treatment and a whole lot of faith, I am alive.

First of all, I'm really glad that things have worked for you! Still, I'd like to notice that having a hysterectomy did not prevent you from having a cancer later on.

Hysterectomy in particular and surgery in general is not a panacea. Where is the cure?
