Beyond BRCA

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.

I am very excited to share this from My Gene Counsel and I hope you will take a look at this link.
