I am 62 years old. Have had ER PR positive early stage breast cancer twice, right breast 2001, left breast 2014. Preliminary BRCA testing is negative. CA 125 was a12. Both my oncologists, upper and lower LOL, are strongly advising me to have my ovaries removed even though there doesn't seem to be any genetic propensity. Their reasoning is because of my two time breast cancer and a history of breast cancer and ovarian cancer on my mothers side, grandmother and aunt.
I am concerned about the side effects of having my ovaries removed even though I have been post menopausal since 50.
Has anyone else been in this situation.
