If you have had a diagnosis of ovarian cancer, it is a common reaction to wonder what caused it, or worry that other family members may be at risk.
These information pages talk through what a family history of ovarian cancer means, whether your family members are at risk of developing hereditary cancer, whether you and your family should have a genetic test, and what the implications are for you and your family if you do have hereditary ovarian cancer.
This content is primarily taken from our guide, Genetic testing and hereditary ovarian cancer - a guide for women with ovarian cancer and their families.
