Can We Prevent Ovarian Cancer?

View descriptionShare

Recent research has shown that most, if not all, high grade serous ovarian cancers originate in the fallopian tubes. With no pronounced symptoms or tests to catch it early, ovarian cancer is usually detected in women with an average risk of cancer and in highly advanced stages. In this episode, gynecologic surgeons Kara Long-Roche (MSK) and Rebecca Stone (John Hopkins) join Dr. Diane Reidy-Lagunes to discuss a procedure that may be effective at preventing the most common form of ovarian cancer: a salpingectomy, or removal of the fallopian tubes. Because of the simplicity of this procedure, Drs. Long-Roche and Stone are advocating for salpingectomies to become routine in women who are seeking permanent birth control, and opportunistic at the time of other abdominal surgeries.
