“Should I Get Tested to Find Out if I have a Genetic Risk for Breast Cancer?” (pkg)

October 16, 2013

It could be your mom, sister, aunt or best friend.  One out of eight women will get breast cancer in her lifetime.  A small subset of the women who get diagnosed have inherited an abnormal copy of a gene that runs in families and can greatly increase their risk of certain cancers. One question these women and their families face is: should I get tested to find out if I have a genetic risk?  The answer is always a very personal one.   [TRT 1:55]
