Breast Cancer BRCA 1 BRCA 2 DNA Test

BRCA NGS Genetic Test

Breast Cancer BRCA 1 BRCA 2 DNA Test

The BRCA 1 and BRCA 2 breast cancer genes are dominant genes. They have been found to be associated with a higher risk of developing breast and ovarian cancers in both men and women. A common form of hereditary breast cancer is caused by mutations in the BRCA1 or BRCA2 gene, which can be detected through a simple blood test.

What is a BRCA Test?

A BRCA test looks for changes, known as mutations, in genes called BRCA1 and BRCA2. Genes are parts of DNA passed down from your mother and father.
A mutation in a BRCA1 or BRCA2 gene can cause cell damage that may lead to cancer. Women with a mutated BRCA gene have a higher risk of getting breast-ovarian cancer.
Men with a mutated BRCA gene are at a higher risk of getting breast prostate cancer. Not everyone who inherits a BRCA1 or BRCA2 mutation will get cancer.

Why do I need a BRCA test?

Have or had breast cancer in both breasts
Have or had both breast and ovarian cancer
Have or had both breast and ovarian cancer
Have a male relative with breast cancer
Have a relative already diagnosed with a BRCA mutation

What is the cost of the BRCA Test?

BRCA Test costs 20000 Rs at DNA Labs India.

What is the reporting time for BRCA Test?

For reports, it will take 4-5 weeks

What is Hereditary Breast and Ovarian Cancer?

A diagnosis of Hereditary Breast and Ovarian Cancer Syndrome (HBOC) is considered when there are multiple cases of breast cancer ovarian cancer on the same side of the family.

1 or more women are diagnosed at age 45 or younger 1 or more women are diagnosed with breast cancer before age 50 with an additional family history of cancer, such as prostate cancer melanoma pancreatic cancer
There are breast and ovarian cancers in multiple generations on the same side of the family, such as having both a grandmother and an aunt on the father's side both diagnosed with these cancers

How is HBOC inherited?

Normally, each person has 2 copies of each gene in their body's cells: 1 copy is inherited from a person's mother and 1 copy is inherited from a person's father.
HBOC follows an autosomal dominant inheritance pattern. This means that a mutation needs to happen in only 1 copy of the gene for the person to have an increased risk of getting that disease.
This means that a parent with a gene mutation may pass along a copy of their normal gene or a copy of the gene with the mutation.
A sibling or parent of a person who has a mutation also has a 50% chance of having inherited the same mutation.

How Do I Interpret the Genetic Test Results?

A negative genetic test means that a breast cancer gene mutation was not identified. If another genetic testing has identified a mutation in your family, a negative test means you do not have the specific mutation.
If a BRCA1 or BRCA2 mutation has not been previously found in your family, a negative result should be interpreted cautiously.
There is still a chance that you may be at higher risk for breast cancer because of changes in genes other than those that doctors can test for.

What Are My Options if I Have a 'Cancer Gene'?

Women in high-risk categories and those who have the genes linked with breast cancer should consider starting regular breast cancer screening at age 25, or 10 years earlier than the age of the youngest relative with breast cancer at the time of their diagnosis.
Some women choose to have a preventive (prophylactic) mastectomy to lower their chances of breast cancer. It's also possible to have your ovaries and fallopian tubes were taken out.
Breast Cancer BRCA1 BRCA2 Test in India Costs 20000 Rs
A BRCA genetic test looks for changes, known as mutations, in genes called BRCA1 and BRCA2. Genes are parts of DNA passed down from your mother and father. They carry information that determines your unique traits, such as height and eye colour.
BRCA testing is not recommended for most people. BRCA gene mutations are rare. But you may want this test if you think you are at a higher risk of having the mutation. You are more likely to have a BRCA mutation if you:

Have or had breast cancer that was diagnosed before age 50

Have or had breast cancer in both breasts.

Have or had both breast and ovarian cancer
A negative result means no BRCA gene mutation was found, but it doesn't mean you won't ever get cancer. An uncertain result means some kind of BRCA gene mutation was found, but it may or may not be linked with increased cancer risk. A positive result means a mutation in BRCA1 or BRCA2 was found. These mutations put you at a higher risk of getting cancer. But not everyone with the mutation gets cancer.
You might be at increased risk of having an inherited gene mutation that increases the risk of breast and ovarian cancers and a candidate for genetic testing if you have:

A personal history of breast cancer diagnosed before age 45

A personal history of breast cancer diagnosed before age 50 and second primary breast cancer, one or more relatives with breast cancer, or an unknown or limited family medical history

A personal history of triple-negative breast cancer diagnosed at age 60 or younger
A health care professional will take a blood sample from a vein in your arm, using a small needle. After the needle is inserted, a small amount of blood will be collected into a test tube or vial. You may feel a little sting when the needle goes in or out. This usually takes less than five minutes.
There is very little risk to having a blood test. You may have slight pain or bruise at the spot where the needle was put in, but most symptoms go away quickly.
