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.

  • 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.
