Expatriate health insurance owners will be happy to know that there will soon be a new technology that will allow them to find out if they have a high risk of having ovarian cancer. With this new method, all they have to do is fill out a form on the Internet.

Nottingham University experts, together with ClinRisk, have created an algorithm that can evaluate the likelihood of an individual to develop cancer of the ovaries. This is done by the assessment of a combination of symptoms and risk factors.

A study has been made about the algorithms efficacy and results show that it could predict 63% of the population of women that were tested. These 63% of women were predicted to have a very high possibility of developing cancer of the ovaries.

With this new technology, it would be easier for people to find out their chances of having ovarian cancer. Expatriate health insurance owners will not have to undergo numerous, and possibly costly, tests in order to find out of they are at risk for developing that type of cancer.
