BRCA TESTING – THINK IT’S NOT FOR YOU? THINK AGAIN. WHAT ARE THE BRCA GENES? WHO IS AT RISK? WHY GET TESTED?
Did you know? Ashkenazi (Eastern European) Jews are at 10 times greater risk to have a mutation in the BRCA1 or BRCA2 gene, regardless of their personal or family history of cancer. A BRCA mutation puts a person at greater risk for certain cancers, including breast, ovarian, pancreatic and prostate. Anyone with a mutation also has a 50% chance of passing it down to each of his/her male and female children.
