The BRCA genes (BRCA1 and BRCA2) are tumor suppressor gene which acts as caretaker of the genome and maintain the integrity with its role in DNA synthesis and repair. Do you know that person who have inherited mutations in these genes are at an increased risk of developing breast cancer (both male and female), ovarian cancer (in female), prostate cancer (in male) and pancreatic cancer (both male and female) as compared with the general population.A BRCA gene mutation screening will determine whether you carry an inherited BRCA mutation. Most people considering genetic testing undergo genetic counseling, which can help you understand what the results could mean for your health and help you decide whether genetic testing is right for you. In general population having a mutation in BRCA gene is rare but inherited mutations in BRCA genes are responsible cancer in breast, ovary and prostate. Mutations in either of the BRCA gene (BRCA1 or BRCA2) significantly increase your risk of developing breast, ovarian or prostate cancer when compared with the person without a BRCA gene mutation. Once detected, and depending on the type of mutation, therapeutic and surgical options are available for reducing the risk of cancer. The life time risk of Breast cancer also can be managed for life time after detecting the type change inherited in the Breast cancer gene.
