CancerBro, Could you please discuss the ovary cancer risk factors in detail?
Early age of starting menses and late age of menopause are the risk factors for the disease.
Late age of marriage increases the risk of ovary cancer.
Also, no child or late birth, after 30 to 35 years of age increases the risk of ovary cancer.
Inadequate breastfeeding also increases the risk of ovary cancer.
Intake of hormone replacement therapy after menopause increases the risk of ovary cancer and consumption of birth control pills decreases the risk.
Increasing obesity is also a risk factor, therefore, the regular physical activity may help in reducing the risk of ovary cancer.
History of breast or ovary cancer in close relatives increases the risk in other family members.
So these were the ovary cancer risk factors.
