London: Older women who are at high risk of developing breast or ovarian cancer should consider having their ovaries removed, a leading expert in Britain suggests.According to Prof Gareth Evans of Manchester University, ultrasound and blood test screening for ovarian cancer is not reliable and so women who with a family history of the disease should think about having the operation to lower their risk of developing tumours.Women who have already reached middle-age and finished having children would be most suitable for the procedure, as removal of the ovaries triggers the menopause, he says."At the moment they can`t rely on screening. Once they`ve completed their family and if they`re over 40, they should consider having their ovaries removed. It`s a pretty small procedure. You`ve been through the menopause so you`re not going to plunge into hot flushes and other symptoms.
