BRCA1/2 Sequence & Deletion/Duplication Analysis
Test Information: BRCA1 and BRCA2 mutations are associated with a significantly increased risk for breast, ovarian and other cancers. Approximately 25-50% of hereditary breast cancer cases have mutations in the BRCA1/2 genes. In general, the test is used when a patient's medical history and family history findings strongly suggest that there is an underlying genetic etiology of breast cancer.
