The BRCA genes (BRCA1 and BRCA2) are part of your body’s natural defense system. They protect you from developing certain cancers.
If you have a BRCA gene that is not working properly (meaning, it carries a harmful mutation), your lifetime risk of developing breast, ovarian and other cancers increases significantly.1,2
A BRCA mutation can increase the lifetime risk of breast cancer in women from 12% to 80% by age 80.3
A BRCA mutation can increase the lifetime risk of ovarian cancer in women from 1.3% to 40% by age 80.3
