Breast cancer is a common disease with 1 in 9 women possibly developing breast cancer before the age of 85. Ovarian cancer is not as common and 1 in 78 women will develop ovarian cancer in their lifetime. For most of these women, cancer will not occur until after menopause and usually for reasons unrelated to an inherited predisposition to breast cancer.
