BRCA Gene Testing
BRCA gene mutation testing can detect specific mutations that make some individuals more susceptible to cancer. We offer both BRCA1 and BRCA2 breast cancer gene testing which can help determine the likelihood of developing breast or ovarian cancer. While this test is not diagnostic in nature and cannot test for cancer, it can help your provider know your risk. Patients who are candidates for BRCA gene testing are those with a strong family history of breast cancer, have been previously diagnosed with breast or ovarian cancer, as well as those who received a cancer diagnosis before age 50. There are other factors that your physician will discuss with you to determine whether BRCA genetic testing is right for you.
