Oophorectomy Linked To Increased Risk of Colon Cancer

Dr. Segelman: Reduced endogenous estrogen and androgen levels may be involved in the increased risk of colorectal cancer seen after oophorectomy in the current study. The findings highlights that prophylactic resection of normal ovaries should be reserved for women with a clear indication, such as a hereditary increased risk of ovarian cancer. Possible negative side-effects of the procedure should always be taken into account and discussed with the women preoperatively.
