Inheriting Cancer: When the risk is in your genes

Inheriting Cancer: When the risk is in your genes

April 12 San Francisco event. Cancer might be in your DNA. Cancer-causing mutations in the BRCA gene came roaring into our collective consciousness when Angelina Jolie candidly shared her decision to undergo a double mastectomy to prevent inherited cancer. How does a BRCA mutation affect the risk of cancer for both men and women? How are genetic cancers different than other cancers, and who should be tested? Join us for a panel discussion on genetic cancer, treatment and prevention. Genetic counselors from ColoHelixr Genomics will demonstrate how testing works. Join the expert panel moderated by Judy Chan for an information packed session on April 12 at the Commonwealth Club San Francisco.
