Not testing Positive for BRCA1/2 Doesn’t Prove Lack of Genetic Breast Cancer Risk

Breast cancer remains a significant and pervasive risk.

Mammography and breast awareness are your best defenses in early detection, thus the best chance of treatment.

But what we still lack is a clear strategy for prevention all together.

There are many genetic variants that can lead to breast cancer.

PALB2, TP53, PTEN, CDH1 genetic mutations are just a few of the others that BRCA 1/2 negative women may have.

There are other strategies for breast cancer prevention, see your health care provider at Women’s Health Practice to discuss.
