  1. Premenopausal BRCA1 / 2 or PALB2 gene mutation carriers who receive hormone replacement therapy (HRT) after preventive salpingo-oophorectomy (PBSO) have a better quality of sexual, psychological, cardiovascular and bone health than carriers who decline HRT.
  2. Premenopausal mutation carriers treated with PBSO who choose HRT have a comparable overall survival and specific survival for breast / gynecological cancer to women who undergo surgery and refuse to receive HRT.
  3. Premenopausal mutation carriers treated with PBSO have better overall and specific breast / gynecological cancer survival than non-SOBP carriers.
