BRCA 1 and BRCA 2 Testing

Q: Several of my friends have recently been tested for the breast cancer gene (BRCA 1 and BRCA 2). If breast cancer does not run in my family, should I consider testing?

 

Probably not. Only about 5-10% of breast cancers are caused by an inherited gene mutation. Your risk goes up if you have one or more first-degree relatives (mother, sister, etc.) with breast or ovarian cancer or early onset cancer (before age 50) in a close relative.

The breast cancer gene test is a blood test that checks for specific change in genes that help control normal cell growth. Finding changes in these genes, called BRCA1 and BRCA2, can help determine your chance of developing breast cancer and/or ovarian cancer.

For the vast majority of women who develop breast cancer, the cause is not from hereditary factors. Therefore, the gene test would not be indicated.
