Hi - I am 38 years old and was recently in shock to find out that I have the BRCA2 mutation. I have absolutely no family history of ovarian or breast cancer. I just had a baby. I would really prefer not to have my ovaries removed. I am not keen on hormone replacement therapy as there is a history of heart stuff in my family. I only did the gene test because normally it isn't offered. Had I not done the test, I would never have known about the mutation. I have been told that my odds of obtaining the cancer have gone from 1% (general pop.) to 11% for the ovarian. Given that there is no family history, I am leaning towards not removing my ovaries. After all, if I have the gene mutation, someone in my family probably has it, but hasn't had the cancer. Anyway, I am scared and overwhelmed. Any information, advice, or input would be greatly appreciated. I will also post this under the Breast Cancer forum since it is relevant too. Thanks.
