Ovaries...To keep or not to keep, that is the question...

If you read the article on the ovarian cancer test more closely, you'll see that the new test is still a few years away from use. It is still in its initial test phase. If it proves to be worthwhile after further testing, it may only be offered to patients at high risk for ovarian cancer.

The risk for ovarian cancer is not that high. You could develop benign cysts later on that could require surgery. You don't say how old you are- if you are over 45 the benefits of keeping your ovaries are fleeting. I decided to keep my ovaries, and am glad I did. However, each woman has to decide what's best for her based on advice from her doctor. Good luck!
