Hereditary Cancer NCJW Panel

Description Studies have shown that 1 in 40 Ashkenazi Jews (men and women) have a BRCA mutation - and most are unaware! Compare that to the general population incidence, where BRCA mutations occur in 1/300-1/800 people. Woman who carry a BRCA mutation have up to an 88% lifetime risk of breast cancer and up to a 45% risk of ovarian cancer. Men also have just as much of a chance of having this mutation, and run a higher risk of prostate and male breast cancers. If we can identify who carries these genetic mutations before they develop cancer, we can prevent cancer. Join us for a panel about hereditary cancer, with an opportunity to get tested right there! Free & open for all!
