Actress Christina Applegate has removed her ovaries and Fallopian tubes to decrease her risk of developing ovarian cancer.

I could prevent that (from happening to me). It's a relief. That's one thing off the table. "Now, let's hope I don't get hit by a bus", she quipped.
In 2015, Angelina Jolie had the same surgery to remove her ovaries and fallopian tubes, just two years after a preventative double mastectomy.
