Hereditary cancer means cancer runs in your family, and could be caused by a change in certain genes that you inherited from your mother or father. Genes act as instructions and contain information to build and maintain cells in the body. Humans inherit one set of genes from their mother and one set of genes from their father.

Patients are becoming increasingly aware of the BRCA genes. However, many questions still exist about what they are and their link to hereditary breast and ovarian cancer, as well as other cancers. Here are answers to commonly asked questions.

Access your health information from any device with MyHealth. You can message your clinic, view lab results, schedule an appointment, and pay your bill. InDNA linkage studies on large families with the above characteristics identified the first gene associated with breast cancer. Scientists named this gene "breast cancer 1" or BRCA1 pronounced brak-uh.

Hundreds of different types of mutations in these genes have been identified, some of which have been determined to be harmful, while others have no proven impact. Harmful mutations in these genes may produce a hereditary breast-ovarian cancer syndrome in affected persons. Having a high-risk mutation does not guarantee that the woman will develop any type of cancer, or imply that any cancer that appears was actually caused by the mutation, rather than some other factor.

A risk factor is anything that increases your chances of getting a disease, such as breast cancer. But having a risk factor, or even many, does not mean that you are sure to get the disease. Some risk factors for breast cancer are things you cannot change, such as getting older or inheriting certain gene changes.

Breast cancer is the most common malignancy among females. As sequencing technologies evolve, more susceptible genes have been discovered and BRCA1 and BRCA2 predisposition seems to be only a part of the story. This paper will summarize all current data on new findings in breast cancer susceptibility genes. Breast cancer is a disease in which breast cells become abnormal and multiply to form a malignant tumor.

People who inherit mutations in these genes are at an increased risk of developing breast cancer and ovarian cancer compared with the general population. The BRCA gene test is offered to those who are likely to have an inherited mutation based on personal or family history of breast cancer or ovarian cancer. The BRCA gene test isn't routinely performed on people at average risk of breast and ovarian cancers.

When either of these genes is mutated, or altered, such that its protein product is not made or does not function correctly, DNA damage may not be repaired properly. As a result, cells are more likely to develop additional genetic alterations that can lead to cancer. People who have inherited mutations in BRCA1 and BRCA2 tend to develop breast and ovarian cancers at younger ages than people who do not have these mutations. Like women from the general population, those with harmful BRCA1 or BRCA2 mutations also have a high risk of developing a new primary cancer in the opposite contralateral breast in the years following a breast cancer diagnosis.
