Ovarian and Fallopian Cancers Risk Factors
The following have been suggested as risk factors for ovarian, fallopian tube and pertioneal cancer:
Early menarche—starting monthly periods early (before the age of 12)
Late menopause (after the age of 52)
Age-over the age of 55
Hormone replacement therapy: Some studies have suggested that women who use hormone replacement therapy after menopause may have a slightly increased risk of ovarian cancer.
Infertility (inability to become pregnant)
Personal history of breast or colon cancer
Family history: First-degree relatives (such as mother, daughter, sister) of a woman who has had ovarian cancer are at risk for developing the disease. The risk increases if two or more first-degree relatives have had ovarian cancer. A family history of breast or colon cancer is also associated with an increased risk of developing ovarian cancer.
Certain fertility drugs
Never ignore the warning signs of ovarian cancer even if you don't have any of these risk factors. Taylor had none of these risk factors but I still consider this good info to share!
