Jolie decided to have a pre-emptive double mastectomy, raising awareness about the r ole of genetics in predicting cancer risk for women around the world. I made a decision to have a preventive double mastectomy. Since then, interest in genetic testing for all types of cancer has increased, but until recently, such testing had to be done in a doctor's office or specialty lab. Now, a company called Color Genomics, has created an affordable saliva test for home use that makes gaining information about your genetic risk for most common hereditary cancers -- including breast, ovarian, colon, and pancreatic cancer -- much easier. It includes phone-based genetic counseling to help you interpret the results and plan for any next steps, if they are indicated by your results. The process is very simple.
Using Functional Genetics to Understand Breast Cancer Biology
Huge genetic-screening effort helps pinpoint roots of breast cancer
October Do you need genetic testing for breast cancer? This means that genes linked to cancer pass from one blood relative to another. Below, Arun shares the information you need to decide if genetic testing for breast cancer is right for you. Check for these factors to determine if you may be at risk:
This means that testing for BRCA in Canada is only available to a small number of men and women with a strong personal or family history of cancer. Our goal at Women's College Hospital is to make genetic testing for cancer available to all men and women in Canada at an accessible price. It is estimated that one in every individuals in the general population carry a mutation in one of the BRCA genes.
