Information About the Breast Cancer Gene

Procedure For Breast Cancer Genetic Testing

A simple blood test is all that's required to test for mutations in the BRCA 1 and BRCA 2 genes (breast cancer genes). Tell your doctor you'd like to be tested, and he or she will arrange for it. Your DNA will be examined to determine if your BRCA 1 and 2 genes are normal. If mutations are found, you may be presented with optional precautionary measures. Discuss these options with your doctor to determine whether they are right for you. The advice of a doctor you trust will help keep your situation in perspective.
