In brief: May be

Ovarian Cancer can be hereditary when first degree relatives have it (i.
e. Daughter , mother, sister) especially if they have it before the age of 50 years old . it is most efficient to test the diseased person for the gene rather the non affected individual to see if this is hereditary.
