Have you heard of the BRCA gene? Have you heard of the medical decisions Angelina Jolie made a few years ago? If you’re on Twitter, I can tell you there is quite a lot of discussion about BRCA and hereditary breast cancer. However, there isn’t much about PTEN mutations, and I want to change that. Granted, PTEN is rare and doesn’t occur as often, but it’s just as serious. I carry a “faulty” PTEN gene, which also increases my risk for breast cancer, not to mention many others.
