Ovarian cancer is a serious and silent disease amongst women. Certain families may even have a history of ovarian cancer. Those with a family history of ovarian cancer are at an increased risk of developing it themselves. While you can't completely do away with the risk of ovarian cancer through diet and exercise you will be able to significantly reduce the risk of ovarian cancer as well as all other types of cancer. Staying healthy and watching your weight is an important personal strategy to help your body stay healthy and avoid all types of cancer and diseases. However, if you have a family history of ovarian cancer then is it even more important that you pay close attention to your body.

If you have a family history of ovarian cancer then the first recommendation is to have genetic counseling on the issue of ovarian cancer. This will help you learn if you have one of the two gene mutations that can lead to ovarian cancer. If you find out that your family has a negative history of ovarian cancer or that you do not have either of the gene mutations then you can enjoy the good news since is means both yourself and your child will have a better chance at not developing ovarian cancer.

However, if you find you do have either of the gene mutations then you shouldn't become discouraged. You will have options to help prevent your ovarian cancer. However, you will need to pay more attention to your body and have pap tests done more often and take a more aggressive approach to your diet. Your doctor will help your determine the best prevention strategy to meet your needs.
