  • BRCA Gene 1

    BRCA Gene 1, also known as Breast Cancer 1, Susceptibility Gene is a "caretaker gene", so called because of its function in repairing DNA and maintaining chromosome stability by producing tumor suppressor proteins. 72% of women who inherit a harmful BRCA1 mutation will develop breast cancer before the age of 80. BRCA1 mutations are known to increase the risk of breast, cervical, uterine and colon cancer.

  • BRCA Gene 2

    BRCA Gene 2 or Breast Cancer 2, Susceptibility Gene is also "care-taker gene." If the gene becomes mutated, however, it is more likely to spur on cancers in different parts of the body. 69% of women who inherit a harmful BRCA2 mutation will develop breast cancer by the age of 80. BRCA2 mutations increase the risk of breast, stomach, gallbladder, bile duct cancer, and melanoma.

Fact:

You are 50% more likely to inherit the BRCA gene mutation if your parent carries the mutated gene.

Symptoms of Breast Cancer include:

  • A lump on the breast
  • Thickening skin on the breast
  • Change in the size of the breast
  • Nipple inversion
  • Peeling or flaking skin on the areola (skin covering the nipple)

Fact:

You are 50% more likely to inherit the BRCA gene mutation if your parent carries the mutated gene.

Symptoms of Ovarian Cancer include:

  • Bleeding between periods and/or during or after intercourse
  • Pelvic pain
  • Abnormal vaginal discharge in odor and consistency
  • Pain during sex
  • Blood in vaginal discharge

The BRCA Test looks for the BRCA1 and BRCA2 genetic mutations to help women understand their hereditary risks for breast and ovarian cancers.

You should take the test if:

  • you have early onset breast cancer (under 50 years of age)
  • you have/had bilateral or multiple breast cancers
  • you have been diagnosed with both breast and ovarian cancer
  • you have a family history of breast and/or ovarian cancer
  • you have a single family member who has had one or more BRCA1 or BRCA2 related cancers
  • you have a family member who has suffered from male breast cancer
  • you have an Ashkenazi Jewish ethnic background

The test must be taken fasted, before 9 a.m and returned on the same day.
