Conditions are hereditary
if they are passed from parent to child by information contained in the genes. About 5 percent of breast cancers are hereditary. BRCA1
are the most well-known hereditary genetic
mutations related to breast cancer.
Genetic tests can tell you whether you have a hereditary mutation
that made it more likely you would develop breast cancer. This information can help you plan your treatment.
