Definitions for "Hysterectomy"
A surgical procedure to remove part or all of a woman's reproductive system.
surgery to remove the uterus. This is performed primarily for benign conditions and in perimenopausal women whose average age is 45-47.

Women who have had hysterectomy appear to be at lower risk for breast cancer perhaps because of lower ovarian testosterone production.
