A Quiz for HBOC Testing

When thinking about your chances of hereditary breast and ovarian cancer (HBOC), it's important to consider your personal history as well as your family history. Is there breast cancer in your immediate family? What about your extended family?

Take the quiz below to help you with initial cancer risk assessment. If you aren't sure exactly how you're related to a particular family member, or whether they had breast or ovarian cancer, discuss it with other family members to get the information you may need to determine if you may be at risk for a BRCA gene mutation. If you know your family history of cancer, a discussion with your doctor about genetic testing and BRACAnalysis® may be that much more valuable.
