Breast cancer in the family: What does it mean?

This course describes genes in which heritable faults (or mutations) increase a woman’s susceptibility to breast and ovarian cancer. It will explain how to assess a woman’s risk of breast and ovarian cancer based on her family history and describe when it is appropriate to refer someone for genetic testing at a familial cancer centre. The module will also describe risk-reducing strategies for women who are found to be at increased risk of breast and ovarian cancer.
