Ovarian Cancer & the Lynch Syndrome Link

Can medical experts really predict if a woman will get ovarian or uterine/endometrial cancer? In many cases, yes – they really can. Read More

Can medical experts really predict if a woman will get ovarian or uterine/endometrial cancer? In many cases, yes – they really can. An inherited genetic condition called Lynch syndrome is actually the most common cause of hereditary uterine cancer, and it also increases the risk of ovarian cancer. The syndrome is passed down from generation to generation, predisposing these women not only to gynecologic cancers, but to colon and other cancers as well. Read More
