What are my chances of getting ovarian cancer? My aunt had something that spread through her abdomen but we never heard what it was before she died.
Depends on you. People who are at increased risk for ovarian cancer are nulliparous (no pregnancy/children). Risk is lowered by pregnancy, and use of oral contraceptives. Genetic mutations, like brca-1 predispose women to both ovarian and breast cancer. Peak incidence is in the 8th decade. Your aunt might have had this, or another tumor, like endometrial, or cervical cancer, which can also spread.
