Thank you for sharing your question about Ovarian Cancer with the EmpowHER community! Some women have a higher risk than others, but the truth remains, that all women have the risk of getting Ovarian Cancer. What is even more surprising is that 90% of women diagnosed do not have a family history which would consider them a higher risk.
Factors that increase risk include:
• increasing age,• personal or family history of ovarian cancer,• breast or colon cancer, and• never having been pregnant or given birth to a child.
Here is a great article from the EmpowHER community that offers some excellent information in greater detail.
