Killexams : Ovarian Cancer Screening Guidelines

Ovarian cancer is the fifth most common cancer in women and the most common cause of gynecologic cancer deaths. In 2008, about 22,000 women will be diagnosed with ovarian cancer, with approximately 15,500 women dying from the disease. Approximately one in 70 women will develop ovarian cancer in her lifetime.

While the most common recognized risk factor associated with the disease is advancing age, other factors contributing to an increased risk of the disease include infertility, endometriosis (a condition in which tissue from the lining of the uterus grows outside of the uterus), and post-menopausal hormone replacement therapy. Additionally, some studies have suggested — but other studies have not confirmed — that use of assisted reproductive technologies such as in vitro fertilization may increase a woman’s risk of developing ovarian cancer. It is important to note, however, that these age-independent risk factors do not significantly increase a woman’s chances of developing ovarian cancer, elevating a woman’s risk level no more than two to three times higher than that of the general population.

Recommendations for ovarian cancer screening traditionally have been organized into one of two sets of guidelines — one for women at average risk and the other for women at increased risk. Now, with the identification of gene mutations that can increase a woman’s chances of developing ovarian cancer, the set of guidelines for women at an increased risk has been subdivided into two groups, with recommendations for women with a clear inherited risk of developing ovarian cancer due to an identified genetic mutation differing from those for women with a family history of the disease. This concept of variable risk has been incorporated into Memorial Sloan Kettering’s current recommendations for ovarian cancer screening.

Ovarian Cancer Risk Types

Women with a risk level near that of the general population (relative risk less than three times the relative risk of the general population)

This category includes women with any of the following:

  • A history of breast cancer diagnosed at age 41 or older and a) no family history of breast or ovarian cancer or b) no Ashkenazi Jewish heritage (individuals of Eastern European Jewish descent from Eastern Europe).
  • A history of infertility and/or use of assisted reproductive therapies, such as in vitro fertilization (IVF).
  • A history of endometriosis (a condition in which tissue from the lining of the uterus grows outside of the uterus).
  • A history of hormone replacement use for the management of symptoms related to menopause.

Women with increased risk* (relative risk three to six times greater than that of the general population)

This category includes woman with any of the following:

  • A first degree relative (mother, sister, or daughter) with ovarian cancer.
  • A personal history of breast cancer prior to age 40.
  • A personal history of breast cancer diagnosed prior to age 50, and one or more close relatives diagnosed with breast or ovarian cancer at any age.
  • Two or more close relatives diagnosed with breast cancer prior to age 50 or with ovarian cancer diagnosed at any age.
  • Ashkenazi Jewish heritage and a personal history of breast cancer prior to age 50.
  • Ashkenazi Jewish heritage and a first- or second-degree relative diagnosed with breast cancer prior to age 50 or with ovarian cancer at any age.

* These estimates are obtained from studies in which genetic testing information was not available. For individuals who meet the family history criteria but have tested negative for a genetic mutation known to increase susceptibility to the disease, the risk of developing ovarian cancer may be substantially lower. These women should consult a medical professional for screening recommendations.

Women with inherited risk due to known genetic mutations (relative risk greater than six times that of the general population)

This category includes woman with any of the following:

  • Presence of a BRCA1 or BRCA2 mutation. BRCA1 and BRCA2 are genes involved in cell growth, division, and repair of damage to DNA that occurs naturally during one’s lifetime. An altered, or mutated, BRCA1 or BRCA2 gene increases the likelihood that cancer will develop. The most common types of cancers associated with BRCA alterations are breast and ovarian cancer.
  • Presence of a mismatch repair gene mutation associated with a hereditary cancer syndrome known as Hereditary Non-Polyposis Colon Cancer (HNPCC)/Lynch syndrome.

Mutations in the genes known to increase susceptibility to ovarian cancer likely account for a large proportion of the incremental risk among women with a family history of ovarian or breast cancer diagnosed before the age of 50. Preliminary evidence has suggested that women with a strong family history of breast cancer but no demonstrable mutation in BRCA1 or BRCA2 may not be at significantly increased risk of ovarian cancer. For this reason and due to the limitations of currently available ovarian cancer screening tests, which are described below, women in the increased risk category should consider genetic counseling and testing prior to initiating ovarian cancer screening or other ovarian cancer risk-reduction strategies.

Ovarian Cancer Screening Tests

A number of tests have been evaluated as potential methods of screening for ovarian cancer. Screening tests with the greatest amount of clinical test data supporting their use include transvaginal ultrasound and the blood test for the serum marker CA-125. (Serum markers are substances in the blood that can be detected in blood tests.) Less information is available regarding a number of other serum markers, used alone or in combination. A newer test based on proteomics, a method which involves the evaluation of patterns of dozens to hundreds of low molecular weight proteins simultaneously, has also been recently proposed.


CA-125 is a protein produced by more than 90 percent of advanced epithelial ovarian cancers. (Epithelial ovarian cancer is the most common form of the disease.) As a result, the CA-125 protein has become the most evaluated serum marker for ovarian cancer screening. In the largest study to date, 22,000 post-menopausal women at average risk of ovarian cancer were randomly chosen to receive either annual CA-125 tests or their usual gynecologic care. In this study, women with ovarian cancer detected by the CA-125 tests had improved survival compared to women diagnosed with ovarian cancer who were assigned to their usual care. While these results were promising, there was no difference between the two groups in the number of deaths due to ovarian cancer. Additionally, although 8,732 women were screened, only six ovarian cancers were detected, with three of these being at an advanced stage.

Other studies have suggested that CA-125 also appears to be elevated in two to three percent of normal post-menopausal women. Given this fact and the relatively low annual incidence of ovarian cancer, screening using the CA-125 test has not been effective enough to warrant its widespread use. For ovarian cancer to be detected in one additional woman using CA-125 as the primary screening method, another 100 to 150 women would have to receive evaluation and approximately 30 diagnostic operations be performed.

To Strengthen the utility of CA-125 measurements for ovarian cancer screening, a method has been proposed that focuses on the change in CA-125 concentration in the bloodstream over time, as opposed to relying on the absolute value. This approach is being used in an ongoing study in Great Britain, in which 200,000 women will be randomly assigned to receive screening with CA-125, screening with transvaginal ultrasound, or their usual care. Results from this study are expected in 2012.

Transvaginal Ultrasound

A number of imaging methods have been evaluated for possible use in ovarian cancer screening. Transvaginal ultrasound has consistently proven to be the most promising imaging method for routine screening of ovarian cancer.

In the largest study to date evaluating ultrasound as a screening method for ovarian cancer, 14,469 women, most of whom were at average risk for ovarian cancer, were monitored using annual transvaginal ultrasounds. Promisingly, 11 of 17 cancers detected by transvaginal ultrasound screening were diagnosed at the earliest stage of the disease, known as stage I. Critics, however, have pointed out than only two of the 11 stage I cancers detected by transvaginal ultrasound were high grade (meaning that the cancer cells have an aggressive growth rate), compared to all six of the advanced stage cancers.

Serum CA-125 in Combination with Transvaginal Ultrasound

Several studies have evaluated the combined use of transvaginal ultrasound and CA-125. These studies have suggested that the combination of these tests result in a higher sensitivity for ovarian cancer detection, but at the cost of an increased rate of false positive results. In an ongoing prostate, lung, colorectal, and ovarian cancer screening trial, 28,816 women were randomly chosen to receive annual transvaginal ultrasound and CA-125 testing. An additional 39,000 women were randomly assigned to a control group in which they received only their usual gynecologic care. The positive predictive values for an abnormal test were one percent for transvaginal ultrasound and 3.7 percent for CA-125. When both were abnormal, this value increased to 23.5 percent. Final results, including impact of screening on ovarian cancer mortality, are expected in 2015.

Our Ovarian Cancer Screening Guidelines

Women with a risk near that of the general population (relative risk less than three times greater than that of the general public)

  • Ovarian cancer screening is not recommended. An annual gynecologic examination with pelvic examination is recommended for preventive healthcare.

Women with increased risk (relative risk of three to six times greater than that of the general public)

  • There is no clear evidence to suggest that ovarian cancer screening with currently available methods will result in a decrease in the number of deaths from ovarian cancer. If, after careful consideration of risks and benefits, ovarian cancer screening with serum markers such as CA-125 and/or transvaginal ultrasound is to be pursued, it is recommended that such screening be done within the framework of research studies to evaluate the efficacy of this approach.

Genetic counseling may also be helpful for women in this group to better clarify the risk of ovarian and related cancers.

Women with inherited risk (relative risk more than six times greater than that of the general public)

  • While it is not clear that ovarian cancer screening will result in a decrease in the number of deaths in women at inherited risk, those who have mutations in ovarian cancer susceptibility genes should undergo ovarian cancer screening using a combination of transvaginal ultrasound and CA-125 testing. For women with mutations in BRCA1 or the mismatch repair genes, MLH1, MSH2, and MSH6, this screening should generally begin between ages 30 and 35. For women with mutations in BRCA2, ovarian cancer screening should be initiated between ages 35 and 40.

Given the limitations of ovarian cancer screening, including the substantial risks of both false positive and false negative results, risk-reducing salpingo-oophorectomy (a surgical procedure that removes a woman’s ovaries and fallopian tubes) should be considered upon conclusion of childbearing by women with documented inherited predispositions.

Killexams : Becker Launches First-of-its-kind Industry Libraries

Accountants gain in-demand knowledge and skills to advance careers in fast-evolving markets with sector-specific CPE offering

CHICAGO, IL / ACCESSWIRE / July 16, 2022 / Becker, an education partner to the world's top accountants and firms, today introduced its Industry Libraries, a CPE (continuing professional education) program designed to help enterprises and accounting and finance professionals deepen their expertise in complex and rapidly changing markets. The first-to-launch Libraries are real estate, health care, and banking with others to be added later this year, including pharmaceuticals.

"Accountants play an important role in every industry. Yet, they're experiencing rising demand for more niche expertise, especially in industries that are increasingly complex and constantly changing, such as real estate, health care and banking," said Jennifer Lowe, Becker's Senior Director of CPE Solutions. "You need to get caught up on the issues that matter most in a new vertical market. With our Industry Libraries, Becker can guide you-helping you get up to speed on the subjects that matter most in a new vertical market, while giving you greater flexibility and ownership of your career and learning journey."

Once enrolled in an Industry Library, you will first study key industry-wide areas and then dive deep into more advanced industry-specific issues and topics-taught by highly regarded instructors with decades of real-world experience in their fields. The Real Estate Library (10 courses for 18.5 CPE credits) covers subjects ranging from identifying risks in a developer's financial statements to understanding special tax issues related to contractors and international construction, and more. The Health Care Library (11 courses for 15 CPE credits) delves into reimbursement systems, cost allocation methodologies and accounting for contingencies, allowances and settlements, among other industry challenges and trends. The Banking Library (10 courses for 12.5 credits) covers the complexities of revenue recognition, trends in ESG reporting, navigating digital assets and cryptocurrency, and understanding the guiding regulatory policies.

"We see an opportunity to change the conversation around CPE," added Patrice Johnson, Becker's Director of Curriculum. "CPE is most often regarded as a ‘check the box' requirement; it offers so much more value when approached through the lens of life-long learning and career advancement. The traditional catalog of courses organized by course still has its place, but our goal with Becker Industry Libraries is to streamline the path to increased potential with the most relevant, up-to-date content for the industry you're in."

Currently, Becker is the only CPE provider with an industry-centric product offering, including content built with a consistent framework for a series of high-growth industries that are rapidly changing and involve complex systems and accounting issues. All courses within the Industry Libraries are available in a self-paced, on-demand format and are viewable 24/7.

Killexams : LiveHealth Online Review 2022: An Online Care Solution

We live in a time where most essential needs are accessible online. You might get your groceries delivered through the web, or even do most of your shopping online.

You can now add your healthcare to that virtual to-do list, thanks to telehealth.

Telehealth, also known as telemedicine, provides online healthcare services through the use of communication technologies. This includes services provided by pharmacists and social workers.

Telehealth lets you to access healthcare services from the comfort of your home oftentimes at a lower cost, and even if you don’t have health insurance.

If you have concerns about visiting an office in-person, then keep practicing to find out if telehealth is a suitable option for you. There are several options to consider, such as LiveHealth Online.

Remember that telehealth is not for medical emergencies. If you’re having an emergency, please call 911.

LiveHealth Online is an online care solution that allows you to virtually visit a healthcare professional at any time.

LiveHealth Online’s services, which are available 24/7, range from advice and treatment for common health concerns to therapy sessions.

If you need immediate access to healthcare at any time of the day or night, LiveHealth Online may be for you.

LiveHealth Online provides 24/7 access to urgent care for common health concerns like allergies, cold, fever, flu, headache, and more. You can also get advice, treatment options, and prescriptions for a child or dependent under 18 years.

In addition to medical care, LiveHealth Online provides psychiatric and psychological care and therapy for select groups. LiveHealth Online doesn’t offer psychiatric care for those under the age of 18. It does offer online psychological therapy for children 10 to 17 years old.

“The number one advantage to telehealth is that it provides better access to therapy, especially for communities who were historically under-resourced,” says Marina Harris, PhD, licensed psychologist and in-house relationship expert for Iris Dating.

“Although most therapists are limited to seeing clients in their state, clients in rural areas can have more access to therapy through telehealth by eliminating the need to travel to be seen in person,” Harris says.

LiveHealth Online services

LiveHealth Online offers a range of care services including allergy, psychiatry, psychology, and medical urgent care. You can also use the LiveHealth Online application in Spanish, and schedule appointments with Spanish-speaking doctors.


An allergy is your body’s natural immune response to a foreign substance called allergens.

According to a 2019 study, 98.8% telehealth users seeking allergy care were highly satisfied with the experience and recommended telehealth.

With LiveHealth Online, you can visit a board-certified doctor of adult medicine, emergency medicine, or a family physician for $59 or less depending on your health plan.

You can see a telehealth trained allergy doctor if you have a:

The platform also offers coupons for allergy relief products, an educational guide, and an allergy app to help you keep track of pollen counts in your area.

Anyone with an account can access LiveHealth Online Allergy urgent care.


LiveHealth Online offers psychiatric services for diagnosing and treating behavioral, emotional, and mental health conditions.

According to a 2022 study, the clinical outcomes of telehealth were as effective as in-person intensive treatment for reducing depressive symptoms.

LiveHealth Online psychiatrists are board-certified medical doctors who have attended 4 years of medical school, 1 or 2 years of internship training, and more than 3 years of special training as a resident in psychiatry.

Your initial evaluation is $175, and each follow-up visit costs $75. Check to see if LiveHealth Online accepts your insurance — prices may be lower depending on your health plan.

You can talk with a psychiatrist if you’re experiencing symptoms of:

LiveHealth Online psychiatrists can prescribe medication, if necessary. They can also help manage any medication you might be taking.

Adults can access psychiatric care on days, nights, and weekends. It may take up to 14 days to see a psychiatrist.


LiveHealth Online can match you with a licensed psychologist or therapist within a few days. You can talk with a licensed mental health professional about common behavioral health conditions.

Andrea Rosenhaft, LCSW-R, founder of BWellBStrong, shares some key facts about licensed therapists:

  • Licensed therapists can be social workers (LCSW’s or licensed clinical social workers) or psychologists (PhD or PsyD).
  • Social workers have a master’s degree in social work and psychologists have a doctorate in psychology.
  • Only psychologists can perform testing (but not all of them provide this service).
  • Neither social workers nor psychologists can prescribe medication.

Whether you see a social worker or a psychologist is a matter of personal preference, Rosenhaft says.

“It’s important to interview several potential therapists, possibly in both disciplines, and learn about their experience and their approach to psychotherapy,” Rosenhaft says. “You can then make a decision about which person you feel the most comfortable with.”

You can see any available therapist for $80 per visit and any psychologist for $95 per visit if you’re experiencing:

  • anxiety
  • depression
  • grief
  • life transitions
  • panic attacks
  • relationship issues
  • stress

LiveHealth Online psychologists and therapists don’t prescribe or manage medication. For help with your prescriptions and medication management, talk with psychiatric service professionals.

Psychology services are available to adults and children ages 10 to 17 on days, nights, and weekends.


LiveHealth Online offers urgent care for common health concerns for adults and children. You can meet with a board-certified doctor for $59 or less if you have:

  • allergies
  • cold and fever
  • diarrhea
  • flu
  • headache
  • minor rashes
  • pink eye
  • sore throat
  • skin infections
  • tooth pain

Your child can visit a doctor that treats children under 18 years with LiveHealth Online Medical for Kids. You can access the LiveHealth Online application in Spanish and talk with Spanish-speaking doctors by appointment via Cuidado Médico.

LiveHealth Online doctors don’t manage long-term or chronic conditions. But they can provide you with short-term prescription refills at the discretion of the provider. Your doctor can also prescribe a short-term refill on your existing birth control prescription, if you’re eligible.

Prices range from $0 to $175 per visit depending on the service and your health plan. Please check to see if LiveHealth Online accepts your insurance — some services may cost less.

LiveHealth Online also welcomes those without insurance or a health plan. You can still see a doctor, psychiatrist, psychologist, or therapist for the standard cost.

You can view your bill before you start a visit. Prices are the same day, night, weekend, or holidays. You can pay with Visa, MasterCard, Discover, and American Express debit and credit cards. The price for services are as follows:

  • LiveHealthOnline Allergy and LiveHealth Online Medicine: The cost of a video visit is $59 or less per session depending on your health plan.
  • LiveHealth Online Psychology: A video visit is $80 for a therapist and $95 for a psychologist, depending on your health plan.

About You

To get started with LiveHealth Online, you must provide your legal first name, last name, and date of birth. You’re also required to provide your email address, current state of residency, and gender.

If your insurance is available on the drop-down menu, you can select it.

The insurance and service key fields are optional. You can leave them blank and add them later on your account. A service key is an optional code provided to certain users through their employer offers.

After you set up a password and agree to the terms of use, you can continue into the application to add a child, health information, insurance, payment option, service key, and more.

Get Started with LiveHealth Online.


Once you’re ready to find a healthcare professional, select the service that you need. If you need to connect with a doctor urgently, select LiveHealth Online Medical and then click on the green “See Next Provider” button. Then, follow these steps:

  • Enter information about who the visit is for (e.g., you or your child) and your phone number.
  • Next, you can enter information about your allergies to medication, chronic conditions, whether you’re pregnant. You can also select a pharmacy, and even add an image or video.
  • You can view the cost of the visit at the checkout page before the start of the visit, and enter a coupon code.
  • You will be matched with a doctor after you complete the payment.

LiveHealth Online doesn’t have a Better Business Bureau profile.

LiveHealth Online has 4.9 out of 5 stars from about 62,000 customer reviews on Apple’s App Store.

One user says it was easy to install the app and set up an account. The user says: “The doctor was extremely kind, helpful, and professional… This will definitely be my go-to option for nonemergency medical care.”

The customer reviews on Trustpilot, on the other hand, tell a different story about canceled appointments, long waits, and poor service. LiveHealth Online’s Trustpilot rating is 1.4 out of 5 stars from 316 customer reviews.

A LiveHealth Online user says on Trustpilot that the service before the pandemic was “pretty awesome,” highlighting the punctuality of the visits and the absence of technical issues. But since the pandemic, the user notes the service is “terrible” with rescheduled appointments without prior notification, long waits, and technical problems.

You can request a refund at any time when you call LiveHealth Online customer service by phone at 1-888-LiveHealth (1-88-548-3432). Customer service is available by phone 24/7.
