Over the past year, a great deal of attention has been focused on BRCA genetic testing, however many of my patients and readers have asked me to clarify this topic. BRCA1 and BRCA2 is short for breast cancer susceptibility gene 1 and breast cancer susceptibility gene 2. The BRCA1 and BRCA2 genes are present in all individuals, and everyone has two copies of each of these genes, one from each parent. The problem develops when you have a mutation of one of these genes, like a spelling error in the genetic code of a gene.
