Thinking about cancer or dealing with cancer risk can be scary or overwhelming, but we believe that receiving information and resources is comforting, empowering, and lifesaving.
Many multigene panels look for mutations in genes that recent research has shown to increase a person’s risk of one or more cancer. However, more research is needed before there is enough evidence to make recommendations on how to manage cancer risk in people with mutations in some of these genes.
At this time, there are no NCCN recommendations for the management of breast or ovarian cancer risk for people with mutations in the following genes:
It is important for people with mutations in these genes to consult with a genetics expert to determine the best risk management plan based on their personal and family medical history and other circumstances.
