What the Doctors Can Say about
Preventing ovarian cancer: Should women consider removing fallopian tubes?

  • This is a topic that is coming up in women’s health. Many women are removing breasts before cancer becomes an issue. What about fallopian tubes???
  • It would stand to reason that ovarian cancer starts in the ovary, but in fact most ovarian cancers start in the fallopian tubes.
  • Currently there is no effective screening test for ovarian cancer.

  • Because removing fallopian tubes has minimal risk, the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists recommends removal of the fallopian tubes (“opportunistic salpingectomy”) when possible at the time of other pelvic surgery, such as hysterectomy, to reduce the risk of ovarian cancer.

  • Not only does removing just the tubes reduce the risk of ovarian cancer, but it preserves ovarian function. The advantage of keeping ovaries in a premenopausal woman is obvious, but advantages of keeping ovaries in a menopausal woman include decreasing risk of death from cardiovascular disease, maintaining cognitive function, and preventing osteoporosis.

  • So if a woman is having pelvic surgery such as hysterectomy, she should definitely discuss removal of fallopian tubes with her doctor.
