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]
