Mother passed from ovarian cancer at 51 y.o. She was BRCA1 positive. Both my sister and I are negative for this gene mutation. Is there any reason for us to do any type of regular screening/preventative measures? are there any environmental or other factors that could ‘turn on’ this gene?

You should not have to do any type of screening or preventative measures if you do not have the mutation identified for your mother.
