Cooke-Moore’s mother and grandmother both had breast cancer, so she thought she was taking a proactive approach to her own health by undergoing genetic testing to find out if she had inherited a higher risk of cancer.The operation is most commonly performed on women between the ages of 40 and 49.
More than 20 million American women have had a hysterectomy, according to data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
This comes with unpleasant side effects like hot flashes, and many women have to start hormone therapy, taking estrogen to balance out their own hormones.
The second doctor reiterated those results and told Cooke-Moore she was at high risk for breast and uterine cancer, the lawsuit claims.

Lori Johns, a nurse, told her she carried mutations of the genes that put her at higher risk for cancers.
As women approach menopause, the odds that they will develop one of several serious uterine health conditions increases.
