Take home messages for women – not just teenagers:
• Use of pills for 10 years will lower your risk of ever developing ovarian cancer while on pills and for almost 30 years after stopping pills. Depo-Provera injections appear to have the same protective effect.
• If you are going to have a tubal sterilization operation, be sure your physician knows you want your fallopian tubes removed too. Not all physicians know this. Also tell female relatives about this!
• If having an hysterectomy in the late 40’s or older, the ovaries should also be removed.
• Some women at high risk for ovarian and breast cancer may be wise to have genetic testing done to see if their risk for ovarian or breast cancr is increased.
