Everybody Has a BRCA Gene

Everybody has a BRCA gene, but it is important to confirm it works properly. If the gene doesn’t work correctly, it is when the cancer appears, says Dr. Arelis Martir-Negron, Medical Geneticist with Miami Cancer Institute.

If a physician suspects that someone can have any gene mutation, he must undergo tests, checking (maternal and paternal) family history and what types of cancer are running in the family in order to confirm the BRCA mutation, explains Jessica Ordonez, Clinical Genetics Manager and Counselor at the same place.
