Detect Mutated Genes

An estimated 5 percent to 10 percent of ovarian cancers are caused by inherited gene mutations. Three hereditary patterns have been identified: ovarian cancer alone, ovarian and breast cancers, and ovarian and colon cancers. There are tests that can detect mutated genes. These genetic tests are sometimes done for members of families with a high risk of cancer.
