colon cancer and ovarian cancer?

Hi Ladies, I was just wondering is there any relationship between the 2 types of cancer? My Mom has colon cancer stage 3 and during her surgery they gave her a hysterectomy no question asked.
If anyone has information on this I sure would like to know.
Thank you,

No questions asked. . . that's amazing. Did the Doc offer an explanation?

colon cancer and ovarian cancer?

As a matter of fact, this is somethiing that I learned after I was diagnosed with ovarian cancer.

I have a strong family history of colon cancer. Both my maternal grandmother AND grandfather had colon cancer at fairly young ages. There's definitely a gene (I can't remember the name specifically), and I didn't know at all that the two cancers are related. In fact, I'll be going for a colonoscopy sometime in the next few months even though I'm a few years away from 50. I'm just covering all the bases...

How old is your Mom? Perhaps that had a lot to do with their reasons for giving her a hysterectomy.

I hope she's doing well and has a complete recovery.

Hi,

I do not know if there is and absolute connection or not but I do know that before I had my hysterectomy I had to have a colonscopy to make sure that that was all clear.

There is a hereditary cancer syndrome called Lynch syndrome

Lynch accounts for about a quarter of colo-rectal cancers.

I have not heard of a hyst being done at the same time as surgery for colo-rectal cancer
