Terms of Use

This Medical Services Registry (hereinafter the “registry”) is intended to provide a useful and searchable database of people with BRCA mutation who would like to contact other people with the same mutation.Users of the Registry may contact the person submitting the information directly, offline. Any communications or transactions between users are handled between the two individuals and FORCE is not involved and takes no responsibility whatsoever in connection with those activities.

Please use this database at your own risk. It is important for users to understand the limits of scientific information on mutations and cancer. Two people with identical mutations may have very different medical experiences. Currently there is not enough evidence to use location or type of mutation within BRCA 1 or BRCA 2 to accurately predict cancer risks beyond general known risks published in peer-reviewed journals.
