Genetic Counseling and Testing

UPMC Content 3

Researchers have identified certain genes that, when changed or mutated, increase your risk for developing breast cancer.

Depending on your personal and family history, you may decide to have the experts at the Cancer Genetics Program study your specific genes.

Genetic testing information may help you:

  • Learn if you have an increased likelihood of developing breast cancer
  • Discover if inherited factors have contributed to yours or a family member's cancer
  • Make more informed medical decisions
