Inherited Breast Cancer Study

Overview

About this study

The purpose of this study is to improve the interpretation of mutations in breast cancer predisposition genes. This will be accomplished by recruiting members of families found to carry deleterious (mainly protein truncating) mutations and evaluating co-segregation of the mutations with cancer within families.

  • Family or personal history of cancer and/or a family or personal history of genetic variants (deleterious or variant of unknown significance) in cancer predisposition genes.
  • Participants may also be those who have tested negatively for genetic variants in cancer predisposition genes.
