A woman or man who inherits the BRCA1 or BRCA2 gene is at risk of developing breast and other cancers. Women with the gene also have increased risk for ovarian cancer. Join us for a discussion about genetic tests to identify BRCA1 and BRCA2 mutations in people with a family history of cancer. Learn about the recent discovery of new genes that help identify people who might benefit from options to help manage cancer risk. The discussion will include treatment options if you test positive for the BRCA1, BRCA2, and other newly described genes. Family History and other Risk Factors will be discussed.
