Breast Cancer Genes in Women of African Ancestry

A recent study in women of African ancestry confirmed genes previously identified to have associations with breast cancer risk (BRCA1, BRCA2, PALB2, ATM, TP53, NF1, and CHEK2) and provided new evidence of breast cancer risk for RAD51C and RAD51D, which was identified previously in European ancestry populations.Check out the full article at 👇https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/35396981/Reference: Díaz-Zabala, et …

New Data to Suggest Additional Genes Associated with Breast and Ovarian Cancer

A recent study reported on cancer risks among over 10,000 cancer patients across the United States who had genetic testing. Findings suggest breast cancer risks were associated with ATM, CHEK2, and PALB2, as expected; but an association was also found with MSH6 (in line with other recently published data, as outlined in another article in …

Breast and Ovarian Cancer Associations for Genes Tested Through Multi-Gene Panels

As testing for multiple genes at the same time (“multi-gene panel testing”) has become increasingly available with tremendous advances in genetic testing technology, it has become critical to evaluate and refine cancer associations and levels of risk for many of these genes now tested. Through a commercial laboratory database of almost 100,000 results of multi-gene …

An Approach to Making Risk Management Recommendations for Newer Inherited Cancer Genes

A recent article sought to develop an approach to cancer risk management among individuals with mutations in newer inherited cancer genes, many of which result in a moderate (rather than ‘high’) cancer risk. Overall, the investigators suggest a framework that takes the age-specific, lifetime, and absolute cancer risks into account for inherited cancer genes where …

What Is the Risk for Ovarian Cancer Among Women with Mutations in Newer Ovarian Cancer Genes?

The most common form of inherited ovarian cancer is due to mutations in the BRCA1 and BRCA2 genes, which are present in 10-15% of women with ovarian cancer and lead to an ovarian cancer risk of up to 44% and 27%, respectively.  Another set of genes known to raise ovarian cancer risks are the mismatch …
