Dr Oz did a segment on Ovarian Cancer, and then gave a list of 3 things we can do today to reduce our risk of Ovarian cancer. Doctor Oz said that 10% of women who get Ovarian cancer have a family history of getting it. You should look at your sisters, mom, aunts, cousins, mom’s mother and grandmother’s sisters. But Dr Barbara Goff said that it is also important to look at your dad’s side of the family, because he could carry the gene and pass it on to you. If you have a family history of Ovarian Cancer, it may be wise to see a Genetic Counselor.
