September 29, 2006, Newsletter Issue #35: Genetic Testing Procedure For Breast Cancer

Tip of the Week

It is a simple procedure for getting tested for mutations in the BRCA 1 and BRCA 2 related to an increased risk for cancer. The first step is letting your doctor know that you would like to be tested. Your doctor will then make arrangements for this procedure, which is nothing more than a simple blood test. Your DNA will be examined to see whether your BRCA 1 and 2 genes are normal. If you are found to have mutations, your doctor will discuss with you the next steps to be taken, and his or her advice and reassurance will help put things into perspective.
