The Australian Women's Weekly - - Medical Q&A -

A new test which ac­cu­rately pre­dicts breast cancer risk in women with a fam­ily his­tory, but who do not test pos­i­tive for BRCA1/2 gene mu­ta­tions, is be­ing devel­oped by re­searchers in Manchester, UK. The new test may re­duce the num­ber of women who un­dergo pre­ven­tive mas­tec­tomies.
