Health Tools help you make wise health decisions or take action to improve your health.
Experts don't know exactly what causes ovarian cancer. Genetics, such as DNA changes, are a risk factor for some women.
In general, about 1 out of 100 women will get ovarian cancer. That risk goes up to 5 out of 100 if one family member has had ovarian cancer, and 7 out of 100 if two or three relatives have had it.2
