Ask Eve: Genetic Testing in Ovarian Cancer

If you, or someone close to you, has been diagnosed with ovarian cancer, you may well hear about certain genes and be asked to consider whether you would like to be tested to see if you have any alterations on them (sometimes mutations).

We have created a guide to understanding genetic testing in ovarian cancer to help you know how the test works, what it is looking for, why it is important and information to support you through the process, so that you can make the best decision for you.

“This excellent resource is so needed for the BRCA community. My mother died of BRCA+ ovarian cancer, and sadly died without understanding what BRCA meant, for her and her children. A resource like this would have been so helpful, I am thrilled it will help women in similar situations to my mum.”
