I am 44 years old. I have a strong family history of ovarian/breast cancer and braca2 of unknown significance. I getvery painful menstrual cramps. Could I have ovarian cancer?

Depending on several factors, including your age, health, etc - it may be nothing at all. Have an exam if you're worried. ...Read more
