A recently published study (October 2017) challenges the accepted mainstream medical theory that ovarian cancer is developed in the ovaries. The study, “Molecular analysis of high-grade serous ovarian carcinoma with and without associated serous tubal intra-epithelial carcinoma ,” was conducted by medical researchers in 2016 at both the Sloan-Kettering Cancer Institute and Johns Hopkins.
The study contends that,
“For decades it was thought that ovarian carcinoma originates in the OSE or ovarian CICs, but few data supported this claim. Lesions resembling an intraepithelial carcinoma in CICs and the OSE are rare. In contrast, a putative precursor of ovarian carcinoma has been described in the fallopian tube, designated STIC, which is found frequently in association with “ovarian” HGSCs and in the fallopian tubes removed prophylactically from high-risk women. …
… The implications of these findings are to direct efforts for prevention and early detection toward the distal fallopian tube, rather than the OSE. Ongoing and planned clinical trials are investigating bilateral salpingectomy with ovarian preservation as a viable option for ovarian cancer risk-reduction.”
Women are often encouraged to have their ovaries removed during an existing pelvic operation to ensure protection against ovarian cancer. Dr. Robert J. Rowen, M.D.  is questioning the need for such surgeries in light of this new study.
The result of surgically removing ovaries, for millions of women, according to Dr. Rowen, has been:
“… a nightmare of hormonal difficulties. The ovaries do, in fact, make some hormone even after menopause and all the eggs are gone.”
Dr. Robert J. Rowen, M.D., is considered the “father of medical freedom” by many and an expert in ozone therapy. After leaving behind the confines of mainstream medicine in the 1980s, he went on to successfully use ozone therapy for treating cancer and other diseases.
He spearheaded legislation in Alaska that protects alternative medical practices and supports health freedom. He attempted to bring this therapy to Africa during the Sierra Leone Ebola outbreak, but it was denied by higher authorities even after receiving enthusiastic acceptance from local doctors. (Source) 
Dr. Rowen states on his Facebook page post , Ovarian Cancer not Ovarian after all, his own conviction that women should think twice before submitting to surgically removing ovaries as a prophylactic solution to ovarian cancer.
Below are some excerpts from Dr. Rowen’s post:
“This is an important study. Many women are told by their doctors that during pelvic surgery they should have their ovaries removed to reduce cancer risk. I know a lot who went along with this, including in relatives. Women are never the same afterwards.”
“ … [the study] findings that most, and possibly all, ‘ovarian’ cancers arise NOT in the ovary but in the distal Fallopian tube. The Fallopian tube covers the site of ovulation and picks up the egg for transport to the uterus. The cancer that becomes or is labeled ovarian starts in the Fallopian tubes.”

Questioning Surgical Interventions to Prevent Disease
There are several occasions where surgeries are necessary, no doubt. Personally, I had cataracts removed with lens inserted, one eye at a time, after it got to the point that my driving had become hazardous to everyone on the road.
But when it comes to most diseases, there are many that are not only unnecessary, but create a disposition toward worse health and the need for constant medical attention with pharmaceutical drugs.
As youngsters back in the day, many had their tonsils, along with adenoids, removed, simply to keep tonsillitis from recurring instead of pursuing a better diet and/using supplements, herbs, or homeopathic remedies to improve their health. This is one such example  of maintaining healthy tonsils, and there are several others.
Often, mainstream medicine refuses other potential healing options. Surgeries are more profitable, after all. If there is an organ that has problems, cut it out, literally. The same is true for gall bladders that contain stones. The gall bladder is an essential part of bile creation and storage for the liver.
But they are routinely removed instead of getting the stones out with simple detox actions or dietary and herbal solutions that can be done by oneself or under the supervision of traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) doctors or Western holistic doctors. (Source) 
Then there is the biopsy to determine if nodules detected in the thyroid gland are cancerous. This involves damaging the thyroid or even removing it completely with a thyroidectomy. Usually the nodules are not cancerous.
Cancer “Prevention” Surgeries?
The most outrageous cancer prevention surgeries have become popularized by high profile women in recent years. A few years ago there was a rash of highly publicized double mastectomies for healthy women who had the genes that purportedly indicate a potential susceptibility to breast cancer.
One of them, a onetime Miss America contestant, Allyn Rose, discovered after her double mastectomy that she actually did not have the BRCA1/BRCA2 genes after all! The genetic disposition had been assumed because her mother died from breast cancer, or maybe the harsh treatments, and there was an even longer family history of breast cancer, so her father pressured her to undergo the operation.

The most notorious double mastectomy who evidently did have the BRCA1/BRCA2 genetic disposition was with movie star Angelina Jolie, who bragged after her mutilation event, “On a personal note, I do not feel any less of a woman. I feel empowered that I made a strong choice that in no way diminishes my femininity.” (Source) 
These actions, that refuse to consider the many less invasive alternative healthier actions to prevent and even cure breast cancer, were upheld by a large segment of publicly expressed opinions as rational and courageous. The hubris of medical ignorance roared throughout mainstream media.
Getting back to Dr. Rowen, he made it clear that these surgical prophylactic solutions are crazy and wondered, with some sarcasm, if the same attitude would carry over for testicular cancer.
It is interesting that there is real genuine testicular cancer. Yet we don’t see doctors encouraging men to have their parts lopped off as they do for female parts (breasts included).
