Hello all. First time here.
Reaching out to see what others experiences have been....
My mother, grandmother, and possibly great grandmother all had or died of ovarian cancer. The question is:
Should I get ovaries out? (would also get uterus out). I just turned 30. I am going to get a second opinion, the first being I should have the surgery. I have three sisters and two of them had a total hyster oophor at 30 and 31, the third sister refuses to do that.
Does anyone have any information they could share with me? Thanks.
You absolutely have a strong history unfortunately and it would be wise to speak with a gyn/oncologist. This disease does not discrimate with age either. I agree with NYC Lady, it's never an easy decision to make, but I also assume, that due to your history, that you are agressively monitoring your health as well.
I would speak with a gyn/oncologist, your husband and family and make an informed decision. Best of luck to you.
I am sorry this disease has grasped ahold of your family to tightly.
