Hi There
there is a risk of ovarian cancer at age 32. You should ask your doctor about genetic testing fro brca1 and 2 gene mutations. You should see a genetic counselor and see if it is appropriate for you to undergo the removal of your tubes and ovaries
best wishes

Also wanted to mention that I have had a child 12 years ago and had a partial hysterectomy (uterus) in 2003 due to severe endometriosis.
