BRCA1 mutations linked to increased risk for serous, serous-like endometrial carcinoma

<i>BRCA1</i> mutations linked to increased risk for serous, serous-like endometrial carcinoma
June 30, 2016

Women who harbored a BRCA1 mutation had increased risk for serous and serous-like endometrial carcinoma following risk-reducing salpingo-oophorectomy, according to the results of a prospective cohort study.

Although risk-reducing salpingo-oophorectomy is standard for women who harbor BRCA mutations, the role of concomitant hysterectomy is controversial because the risk for uterine cancer in this cohort had been unclear. Some studies had suggested that the risk for uterine corpus cancer in these women was linked to tamoxifen citrate use.
