BRCA1 and BRCA2 gene mutation testing used to cost up to $4,000… but nowadays you can test for ovarian and breast cancer screening in the comfort of your own home.
It’s a fraction of the previous cost, takes minutes to perform at home, and your results for the BRCA gene mutations will be carefully reviewed by medical professionals. Throw in free genetic counseling and this test seems like a crystal ball that can show you what your future may hold.
The question is, what do you do with that knowledge once you have it?
Knowing if you have a BRCA1 or BRCA2 gene mutation can definitely be an asset in determining your overall cancer risk and allows you to start exploring your options early.
If you don’t have the gene, though, it doesn’t mean your chance of cancer is nil. Roughly 90% of all breast cancers aren’t related to the BRCA genes.
