I read recently that research has shown the use of HRT can increase the risk of ovarian cancer. Does this issue refer also to the use of vagifem, the HRT tablet which I take vaginally for a bladder problem? I am 66 years old and was a member of the UKTOCCS research.

I’m considering taking Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT). Please can you explain to me how it works, and what the benefits and side effects of taking it are?
Could PARP drugs be used as an alternative to surgery?

Is there evidence that PARP drugs may be used for long-term new tumour formation prevention? For example as an alternative to drastic surgery for individuals tested as BRCA positive?

Do we need a national registry to track ovarian cancer symptoms?

Would it be beneficial to have a national registry of when women with ovarian cancer first start noticing symptoms? Current stats only report the age which many women are diagnosed, but noting when symptoms start might prevent women being dismissed as ‘too young’ to have ovarian cancer.
