I'm struggling with this dilema. If I leave them in, I may be sorry in a few years. I'm 46, and my GP is all for removal. Screening is not perfect, cancer in the ovaries can be difficult to detect on ultrasound. Endometrial cancer symptoms usually show up early in the disease.
It's strange looking and feeling so healthy, to have to consider surgery.
My colon cancer surgery was 13 years ago, I thought all this stuff was behind me. Now that I know I have HNPCC, it's like a Pandora's box open. But, I would rather know than be unaware.
I have a genetics counselor who recommends removal. I am a health professional myself, and I know the risks. I guess I would worry a lot less if the risk was removed. I think Laparoscopic surgery is the least invasive. Menopause is on it's way, anyways, which ever route I choose. Any other ladies out there struggling with this dilema?
