Approximately 1 in 78 women will develop ovarian cancer. 15% of ovarian cancer diagnoses are linked to hereditary factors passed down through families, usually caused by mutations in the BRCA1 and BRCA2 genes. If ovarian cancer runs in your family, please tell your Women’s Health OB/GYN. The good news is that when diagnosed and treated early, the 5-year survival rate is over 90%.
