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.
Dr. Eilber, Dr. Anger, and Dr. Scott are the “Down There Doctors,” who are a team of urogynecologists and are a powerful resource for all things people are generally hesitant to talk about. They are also the authors of the newly released book, A Woman’s Guide to Her Pelvic Floor: Watt the F*@# Is Going on Down There?
They are urogynecologists committed to improving the lives of women by providing education and treatment for pelvic health problems. They are moms, wives, wellness experts, and surgeons who are passionate about using evidence-based medicine, holistic approaches, and our combined 50 years of experience to motivate and empower women with knowledge and control over what is going on down there!
The Down There Doctors wrote this book because they felt it was long overdue and felt women shouldn’t have to figure out a lot of difficult things on their own.
