genetic cancer testing

Research has shown that women with certain risk factors are more likely than others to develop breast cancer. A risk factor is something that may increase the chance of developing a disease.

hereditary breast cancer

Hereditary breast and ovarian cancer syndrome is an inherited cancer-susceptibility syndrome marked by multiple family members with breast cancer, ovarian cancer or both; the presence of both breast and ovarian cancer in a single individual; and early age of breast cancer onset..

If several women in a family have ovarian or breast cancer, especially at a young age, this is considered a strong family history. If you have a strong family history of ovarian or breast cancer, you may wish to talk to a genetic counselor. The counselor may suggest genetic testing for you and the women in your family. Genetic tests can sometimes show the presence of specific gene changes that increase the risk of ovarian cancer.

Texas breast reduction

I just recently discovered your Blog and appreciate you sharing your bout with breast cancer with the world. My sister-in-law underwent a breast removal surgery after being diagnosed stage 2 borderline 3. Initial lumpectomy followed by bilateral mastectomy, 4 rounds chemo , oophorectomy, delayed reconstruction (tissue expanders replaced with saline implants), Arimidex. And I am always looking for more information that can help her.

familial predisposition to breast cancer

Lump may figure in the breast, chest or under the arm if the cancer is in the breast or near the chest wall. One should also observe a transformation in the size, shape and skin of the breast.

Earlier the diagnosis of breast cancer always involved the exclusion of the breast and the surrounding skin, muscles below the breast and the lymph nodes below the arm. Today’s method of diagnosis is well advanced than the traditional methods of medication. Besides mammogram, Fine Needle Testing and 3D Ultrasound is also used

Breast cancer is the most common cause of cancer in women and the second most common cause of cancer death in women in the U.S. While the majority of new breast cancers are diagnosed as a result of an abnormality seen on a mammogram, a lump or change in consistency of the breast tissue can also be a warning sign of the disease. Heightened awareness of breast cancer risk in the past decades has led to an increase in the number of women undergoing mammography for screening, leading to detection of cancers in earlier stages and a resultant improvement in survival rates.

breast cancer hereditary

The most important things we inherit from our parents are their genes. One set of gene from mother’s side and another from father’s side make up a pair of gene and in human bodies most genes are found in pair.

Now, it is written in the genes, how we will look, how we will grow and how healthy we will be through our lifetime. When there is some abnormality in one of the genes, they stop functioning in the way they are expected to do. The genes that have such abnormalities are called mutated or altered genes.

brca 1 and brca 2 mutations

About 5% to 10% of breast cancer cases are reported to be hereditary. In these cases, the disease run in the families and directly results from mutated genes inherited from a parent. Genetic cancer testing has become a popular means of knowing whether or not you have cancer in your genes. But before you go for such a test, it is important to have a basic understanding about the test and its consequences.
