Risk-reducing surgical options could be tested. We found a nonsignificant increase, by one factor of 2.3, in the chance of ovarian malignancy for PALB2 carriers. The question of whether loss-of-function mutations in PALB2 confer a predisposition to ovarian cancer will demand larger studies to handle. We also estimated that the chance of breast cancers for male PALB2 mutation carriers is certainly increased by one factor of 8, which is consistent with previous reports,7,35,36 however the confidence interval because of this estimate was very large.
