From SNPedia

The Wikipedia article on ovarian cancer is a good place to start.

SNPs reported to influence ovarian cancer (OC) often overlap those for breast cancer. At least eleven genes may contain pathogenic mutations for ovarian cancer, including:

  • Suspected OC genes (likely to increase risk >2 fold):

The following genes may in a more minor way (increasing risk <2 fold) affect relative risk of ovarian cancer:

As for the good news, some SNPs confer lower risk of ovarian cancer:
