BRCA Testing
BRCA testing is a predictive medicine product for hereditary breast and ovarian cancer.
 
Hereditary breast and ovarian cancer syndrome is an inherited condition that causes an increased risk for ovarian cancer and early onset breast cancer (often before age 50). The vast majority of hereditary breast and ovarian cancer is due to an alternation or mutation in either the BRCA1 or BRCA2 genes.  These mutations can be inherited from either your mother or father.
