Family history of BRCA (BRCARE® Family Test)
BRCA1 and BRCA2 genes are DNA repair genes. Inherited mutations in the DNA repair genes cause loss of its function, and the genes does not respond to damage in DNA. Then many factors affect to accumulate a large amount of DNA damage. Accumulated DNA damage eventually leads to malignant tumors, and especially, BRCA mutations increase the risk of breast/ovarian cancer.
