Removal of Ovaries Can Reduce Breast Cancer Risk in Women


Researchers in Canada say women with the BRCA1 or BRCA2 gene mutation may not only prevent ovarian cancer by having their ovaries removed, but may also have a decreased risk of dying from breast cancer.

The study looked at the data of 676 women, of whom half underwent oophorectomy after being diagnosed with breast cancer, while the others retained both ovaries.

In study participants with the BRCA1 mutation, there was a significant reduction of 62 percent in breast cancer death, in women with the BRCA2 mutation, the reduction was at 43 percent.
