Prof Gareth Evans of Manchester University said that women who carry a family history of ovarian cancer should consider surgical removal of the ovaries to offset the risk of developing tumors.

Women who already have children, feel their family is complete and are above 40 years of age should seriously think of having the ovaries removed. This causes early menopause but thankfully without many of the irritating symptoms of menopause.  

This assumes greater importance as ultrasound scans and blood tests cannot effectively spot ovarian cancer in the initial stages.
