About Hereditary Genetic Testing For Cancer and Cardiovascular (Heart) Disease

All Cancers are not usually inherited, but some types – mainly breast, ovarian, colorectal and prostate cancer – can be strongly influenced by genes and can run in families. 10-15% of most cancers in women and men are due to inherited genetic mutations. These can significantly raise your risk of developing cancer because the mutated or altered genes cannot repair damaged cells, which can then build up and form a tumour.

BRCA1 and BRCA2 are two of the most ‘famous’ examples of genes that can raise your cancer risk if they become altered. They greatly increase a woman’s chance of developing breast cancer and ovarian cancer and this was the reason that Angelina Jolie had preventative breast and ovarian cancer surgery. They also increase a man’s chance of developing male breast cancer and prostate cancer.

BRCA genes are not the only cancer risk genes. Researchers have recently identified more than 100 new gene variants associated with an increased risk of breast, prostate and ovarian cancer. Individually, these new gene variants only slightly increase the risk of cancer, but a combination could mean a much higher overall risk.

If you or your partner have a high-risk hereditary gene, it can be passed on to any children you may have.

The picture is very similar for the risks associated with cardiovascular disease and what this means for your future health – and that of your family.

  • Why to Get Tested ?

If you’re really concerned about your risk of developing any  particular disease or condition – perhaps because you know it’s in your family history – genetic tests can really  help:

  • These tests can give you information if you – or members of your family – should start early cancer or cardiovascular screening
  • These tests can give you information if you should talk to your doctor at an early stage about maintaining good general and cardiovascular health
  • These tests can give you information if you should talk to your doctor about lifestyle changes or take other measures
  • These tests can give you information to your doctor and they may find it useful to know how your genes can influence the way your body processes certain medications
  • These tests can give you information about knowing what your genes say about risk can help you and your family be proactive about conditions that may run in your family.
  • These tests have some disadvantages too. Some times results of some genetic tests are inconclusive – doctors may identify a variation in a gene, but not know what effect it may have. A positive result may cause permanent anxiety – some people would rather not know about their risk and only want to be told if they actually develop a condition.
