Researchers at UCSF Helen Diller Family Comprehensive Cancer Center are conducting a study to understand differences in health among women with a mutation in BRCA1 or BRCA2 who decide to have surgery to remove the ovaries and fallopian tubes compared with women who decide not to have this surgery.
You may be eligible to participate in this research study.
Here’s what the study involves:
· Opportunity to receive information about your cardiovascular and bone health
· Complete questionnaires about your medical history
· You will be paid up to $475 for your participation in the study
· Information will be kept confidential
