If there is a family history of breast and ovarian cancer, there may be a mutation in the breast cancer genes present. A doctor with a special interest in breast cancer or a superspecialist breast centre should look at your family history and advise you accordingly. We make use of computerized risk assessment tools that give us an estimate of your risk of suffering breast cancer and the risk of a breast cancer causing mutation in your genes being present. Further management is then according to these risk assessments.
