Breast and Ovarian Cancer (BRCA1 and BRCA2)


BRCA1 and BRCA2 are genes called tumor suppressor that work to protect our body against cancer. Their function is to keep breast, ovarian and other cells growing normally.

Everyone has BRCA1 and BRCA2, both men and women.

When either one of these two genes is mutated, people's chance of developing breast and ovarian cancer are greatly increased ( up to 80% for breast cancer, 60% for ovarian cancer).

Early detection of BRCA1 and BRCA2 mutations could allow the development of tailored approach and save your life.

Women with a mutated BRCA1 or BRCA2 gene also have an increased risk of developing ovarian, colon, and pancreatic cancers, as well as melanoma.

Men with an abnormal BRCA1 or BRCA2 have an higher risk of breast cancer, and an higher risk of developing prostate cancer.

About 1 in 300 people carry a BRCA1 mutation, and 1 in 800 carry a BRCA2 mutation.
