I was told by my gyn oc that ovarian, breast and colon cancers are all related. He montors me closely for breast and colon cancer. I do get my mammos and my colonoscopies regularly and he palpates my breasts every time I go to him for a check-up.
I recently attended a seminar by a doctor representing the Susan G. Komen foundation and she was warning the audience that if they've had breast cancer they should screen for ovarian and colon cancers as well no matter what their ages.
