Reseаrchers have found that having a preventive mastectomy may reduce the risk of breast cancer in women with BRCA 1 and BRCA 2 mutations. They also discovered that preventively removing both a Fallopian tube and an ovary — a procedure called a salpingo-oophorectomy — lowered the risk of ovarian cancer, the risk of breast cancer in women who were never diagnosed with it before.
