Modern medicine has made assessing one’s risk of developing various forms of cancer much simpler. This can be especially helpful for women who have inherited gene mutations that make them particularly vulnerable to breast cancer. As the American Cancer Society explains, “When it comes to breast cancer risk, the most important inherited gene changes are in the BRCA1 and BRCA2 genes.
