In brief: 5%
Women with a personal history of breast cancer have a 3-fold increased risk of ovarian cancer.
This association is even higher in women with a brca mutation, who may have a15-45% risk of ovarian cancer.

In brief: Varies
If your breast cancer was caused by a mutation in the brca gene, then your risk of ovarian cancer is greatly increased.

1 doctor agrees
In brief: Depends
If there is no other significant risk factors that indicate possibility of having a particular genetical abnormality i.
e. Brca1 or 2 or lynch syndrome- such as- young age of cancer diagnosis or family history of ovarian, breast cancer or other cancer such as uterine/colon etc in 1 or more generation- then the risk to have ovarian cancer will be the same as the general population.
