We had an excellent question from a participant who has the KRAS-variant and had chosen to have her ovaries removed. She asked her OB/GYN if she still needed to have pelvic exams since she no longer had ovaries. She was told she did not.
I checked that fact with other experts in the field and actually, the consensus was she still should have yearly gynecological exams as she still has her uterus, so it would be safest for her to undergo these exams on a regular basis. I’m happy to take any additional questions!
