In brief: For High Risk Women
Having your ovaries removed is usually reserved for women with a significantly increased risk of breast cancer and ovarian cancer due to an inherited mutation in the brca1 or brca2 gene — two genes linked to breast cancer, ovarian cancer and other cancers.
High-risk women age 35 and older who have completed childbearing are the best candidates for this surgery.
