Cancer Risk-Reducing Opportunities in Gynecologic Surgery

This review article discusses cancer risk-reducing opportunities in gynecologic surgery. We cover strategies to reduce ovarian and uterine cancer risk by presenting general practice guidelines and expanding on the literature behind clinical decision points. We address populations of women at increased hereditary risk and those at population risk. We present discussions on the role of gynecologic surgery, specifically, risk-reducing salpingo-oophorectomy, prophylactic salpingectomy with delayed oophorectomy, concomitant hysterectomy, opportunistic salpingectomy, and bilateral tubal ligation. For clinical scenarios in which data are limited or conflicting, we detail the studies on which clinicians' decisions hinge, so that the reader can weigh the evidence themselves.
