CAUSES OF UTERINE CANCER
 
02:53
Doctors don't know what causes endometrial cancer. What's known is that something occurs to create a genetic mutation within cells in the endometrium — the lining of the uterus. The genetic mutation turns normal, healthy cells into abnormal cells. Healthy cells grow and multiply at a set rate, eventually dying at a set time. Abnormal cells grow and multiply out of control, and they don't die at a set time. The accumulating abnormal cells form a mass (tumor). Cancer cells invade nearby tissues and can separate from an initial tumor to spread elsewhere in the body (metastasize). Risk factors Factors that increase the risk of endometrial cancer include: 1. Changes in the balance of female hormones in the body. Your ovaries make two main female hormones — estrogen and progesterone. Fluctuations in the balance of these hormones cause changes in your endometrium. A disease or condition that increases the amount of estrogen, but not the level of progesterone, in your body can increase your risk of endometrial cancer. 2. More years of menstruation Starting menstruation at an early age — before age 12 — or beginning menopause later increases the risk of endometrial cancer. The more periods you've had, the more exposure your endometrium has had to estrogen. 3. Never having been pregnant Women who have never been pregnant have a higher risk of endometrial cancer than do women who have had at least one pregnancy. 4. Older age As you get older, your risk of endometrial cancer increases. Endometrial cancer occurs most often in women who have undergone menopause. 5. Obesity Being obese increases your risk of endometrial cancer. This may occur because excess body fat alters your body's balance of hormones. 6. Hormone therapy for breast cancer Women with breast cancer who take the hormone therapy drug tamoxifen have an increased risk of developing endometrial cancer. If you're taking tamoxifen, discuss this risk with your doctor. For most women, the benefits of tamoxifen outweigh the small risk of endometrial cancer. 7. An inherited colon cancer syndrome Hereditary nonpolyposis colorectal cancer (HNPCC) is a syndrome that increases the risk of colon cancer and other cancers, including endometrial cancer. HNPCC occurs because of a gene mutation passed from parents to children. If a family member has been diagnosed with HNPCC, discuss your risk of the genetic syndrome with your doctor. If you've been diagnosed with HNPCC, ask your doctor what cancer screening tests you should undergo.

Endometrial Cancer causes the endometrial cancer symptoms the lining of the uterus. Uterine cancer is miles the give up the end result of the incredible growth of cells which have the capability to invade or spread to other elements of the body. Know more subscribe this channel: https://goo.gl/gQL0cj The primary signal is most customarily vaginal bleeding not related to a menstrual period. Different symptoms encompass ache with urination or sexual intercourse, or pelvic ache. Endometrial cancer occurs most typically after menopause. Endometrial cancer is likewise related to excessive estrogen publicity, immoderate blood pressure, and diabetes. Whereas taking estrogen by myself increase the threat of endometrial most cancers, taking each estrogen and a progestogen in aggregate. Endometrial Cancer Symptoms: Vaginal bleeding or recognizing in girls after menopause happens in 90% of endometrial cancer. Bleeding is especially not unusual with adenocarcinoma, happening in -thirds of all cases. Strange menstrual cycles or common episodes of bleeding in ladies before menopause will also be a signal of endometrial cancer. Signs and symptoms apart from bleeding are not common. Different signs embody thin white or clear vaginal discharge in postmenopausal ladies. • Vaginal bleeding after menopause. • Bleeding between periods. • A peculiar, watery or blood-tinged discharge from your vagina. • Pelvic ache. When See a Doctor: Make an appointment together with your health practitioner if you experience any signs and symptoms that fear you, together with vaginal bleeding or discharge now not related to your intervals, pelvic pain, or ache during intercourse. Endometrial Cancer Causes: Clinical docs do no longer recognize what causes endometrial cancer. What's diagnosed is that a few factor takes place to create a genetic mutation inner cells within the endometrium — the liner of the uterus. The genetic mutation turns everyday, healthy cells into odd cells. Healthful cells grow and multiply at a tough and speedy price, subsequently lack of life at a hard and fast time. Strange cells develop and multiply out of control, and they do no longer die at a fixed time. The accumulating uncommon cells form a tumor. Maximum cancers cells invade nearby tissues and may break free an initial tumor to unfold elsewhere within the frame metastasize.

5 Early Warnings Of Uterine Cancer to Never Ignore. While certain risk factors may increase the likelihood of developing uterine cancer, experts are unsure of the actual cause; that is, the physiological mechanism, which appear to underpin the eventual development of most known medical conditions. Fortunately, because of the obvious symptoms which accompany uterine cancer, it is often easily detectable. Doctors and researchers state that a genetic mutation of endometrial cells is responsible. As with every cancer, the proliferation, and spread of mutated cells allow tumors to form. The spread of cancer cells to other places in the body, is known as metastasizing. .........................

Detecting and Treating Endometrial Cancer
 
01:51
It’s the fourth most common cancer for women in the U.S., but doctors say 80 percent of the time endometrial cancer is caught in stage one. Dr. Fadi Abu Shahin, a gynecologic oncologist on the medical staff of Lee Health, says endometrial cancer can be caused by age, genetics, or medication. “Endometrial cancer is cancer of the endometrium, which is the lining of the uterus on the inside. The most common is what we call unopposed estrogen where the woman’s body is producing estrogen only and not producing progesterone to counter act the effects of estrogen in the uterus.” That can lead to overgrowth of the lining of the uterus and can become cancerous over time. Women who are at risk for endometrial cancer may have a genetic predisposition or polycystic ovarian syndrome, where they don’t ovulate regularly. In both cases doctors may prescribe birth control or hormone therapy as a preventative. “The best treatment for those women is to put them on birth control pills or some form of hormonal therapy to prevent and protect the uterus from exposure to estrogen,” said Dr. Abu Shahin. There’s no regular screening for endometrial cancer, but doctors say if women experience symptoms they need to call their physician. “In women after menopause any bleeding is abnormal. In women before menopause any irregularity in their periods or bleeding outside their period is abnormal,” said Dr. Abu Shahin. Endometrial cancer is the most common gynecologic cancer in women. If women are at risk, doctors may use genetic screening, biopsies, or ultrasounds to look for precancerous changes in the uterus. “70 to 80 percent of all women with endometrial cancer are diagnosed at stage one, which means the cancer was contained to the uterus, which means it’s highly curable,” said Dr. Abu Shahin. Patients may undergo a hysterectomy or choose to have only the high risk lymph nodes removed in a shorter, less invasive procedure.

Endometrial cancer: how your genes make a difference
 
02:16
Using tumour information to help understand specific gene faults in endometrial cancer Some individuals are very likely to develop cancer because they have inherited a genetic fault. Families with a history of these cancers are offered gene testing to find which individuals carry the fault, so they can be offered screening for early detection, or preventative treatment. Features of colon tumours are one useful way to differentiate who needs to be tested for these gene faults. Bryony Thompson will use her funds from the Weekend to End Women's Cancers to see if these same features can also be used to predict if a woman with endometrial cancer need to be tested for the gene fault.

ovarian cancer causes and risk factors
 
03:54
Ovarian Cancer Risk Factor Family History Family history of ovarian cancer is a risk factor; a woman has a higher chance of developing it if a close relative has had ovarian, breast, or colon cancer. Inherited gene mutations, including the BRCA1 and BRCA2 mutations linked to breast cancer, are responsible for about 10% of ovarian cancers. Talk to you doctor if you have a strong family history of these cancers to determine if closer medical observation may be helpful. Age Age is the strongest risk factor for ovarian cancer. It is much more common after menopause, and using hormone therapy may increase a woman’s risk. This risk appears strongest in those who take estrogen therapy without progesterone for at least 5-10 years. It is not known whether taking estrogen and progesterone in combination also increases risk. Obesity Obesity is also a risk factor for ovarian cancer; obese women have both a higher risk of developing ovarian cancer and higher death rates from this cancer than non-obese women. The risk seems to correlate with weight, so the heaviest women have the highest risk. Thanks for watching Visit our site at http://realhealth.top

Cancer DNA Tests
 
00:31
Cancer DNA Tests We all inherit our genes from our parents. Some of these genes protect us from developing certain types of cancer. Sometimes we inherit an irregular version of one of these genes and this is known as a mutation. Genetic mutations can have harmful, beneficial, neutral (no effect), or uncertain effects on our health. Harmful mutations can increase our susceptibility to developing diseases such as breast, ovarian, uterine, colon or pancreatic cancers. If you have immediate family members who have developed cancer or a strong history of cancer exists in your family over several generations, you may have a hereditary cancer predisposition. Our genetics are not the only cause of cancer. There are numerous other factors which can influence the development of the disease, such as lifestyle, environment, diet, advancing age, and exposure to toxic substances. This test can provide helpful information for patients who have a family history of certain types of cancer, such as colon, prostate, or pancreatic cancer, since some genetic mutations included in this analysis are linked to the development of these cancers in patients. genetic testing for breast cancer, breast cancer genetic testing, breast cancer genetics,genetic test for breast cancer,genetic testing breast cancer,genetic breast cancer,genetic breast cancer test,genetic screening for breast cancer,breast cancer and genetics,genetics of breast cancer,genetics and breast cancer,breast cancer genetic risk,breast cancer genetic screening,genetics breast cancer,genetic test breast cancer,breast genetic testing,genetic screening breast cancer,CHEEK CANCER TEST,SWAB CANCER TEST,DNA SWAB TEST,SWAB CANCER SCREENING,SWAB A CHEEK,CANCER DNA SCREENING,CANCER SWAB SCREENING,cheek swab dna test, cheek swab cancer test, cheek swab cancer screening, DNA cheek cancer test, Cheek cancer swab, buccal swab dna testing, buccal swab cancer test, swab for cancer, swab a cheek, cancer dna screening, cancer dna test,cheek swab cancer,swabbing for cancer

BRACAnalysis: Genetic Testing for Breast and Ovarian Cancer
 
02:23
Perhaps you have seen the ads to be tested for the breast cancer gene. It is the latest in the fight against breast cancer. The test is called BRACAnalysis and it looks at two genes, BRCA 1 and 2. It's a blood test that reveals your risk of breast cancer and ovarian cancer. According to genetic counselor Lindsey Byrne, 5-10% of all breast cancer cases are hereditary, especially in younger patients. Dee Dee James is just one patient who has chosen to be tested. Upon her breast cancer diagnosis at age 39, James was set on finding out whether or not she carried the gene. In addition to interest in knowing where her cancer came from, she also wanted to know if her diagnosis could someday impact her daughter. A positive BRACAnalysis test showing a genetic mutation means up to an 85% chance of developing breast cancer, and up to a 60% chance of developing ovarian cancer. However, there are options for prevention. Through genetic counseling, James learned that she did carry the mutation and decided to have a double mastectomy and a hysterectomy, on top of chemotherapy. Women who test positive can also get MRIs along with mammograms and additional screenings to help support early detection. And all women, regardless of hereditary risk, are encouraged to perform breast self-exams and schedule regular mammograms.

10 Warning Signs of Cervical Cancer You Should Not Ignore | Natural Health Forever
 
07:11
10 Warning Signs of Cervical Cancer You Should Not Ignore Cervical cancer is one of the most common cancers in women worldwide. It occurs in the cells of the cervix, the lower part of the uterus that connects to the vagina. Almost all cases of cervical cancer are caused by a virus called human papillomavirus (HPV). Women of all ages are at risk of developing this cancer after they begin having sexual intercourse. Risk factors include unsafe sex, multiple sex partners, being overweight, use of oral contraceptives, genetics, smoking, poor immunity, multiple pregnancies and first pregnancy at a young age. One of the scariest things about this cancer is that it does not show any symptoms in its early stages. After the disease has spread to the bladder, liver, intestines or lungs, the symptoms are more prominent. Top 10 warning signs of cervical cancer you should not ignore. 1. Abnormal Vaginal Bleeding 2. Unusual Vaginal Discharge 3. Pain during Intercourse 4. Pelvic Pain 5. Discomfort while Urinating 6. Heavier and Longer Menstrual Periods 7. Loss of Bladder Control 8. Unexplained Weight Loss 9. Constant Fatigue 10. Leg Pain Thank you for watching ! If you like the video, give it a thumbs up and share it with your friends !

The Connection Between Obesity and Uterine Cancer
 
04:19
A very frequent question I am asked from my patients when diagnosed with uterine cancer is how did this happen or why did this happen to me. There is really two answers to that question. One is there is a genetic syndrome called Lynch syndrome or HNPCC that puts certain families at risk for uterine cancer and so if you have a patient or you come from a family where you see many cancers on one side of the family and those cancers that we worry about being linked to Lynch syndrome are colon cancer, uterus cancer, ovary cancer, kidney cancer, and some other more rare instances of certain brain cancers, you may actually be in a family that has a genetic mutation that puts a woman at risk for uterus and ovary cancer. The most important risk factor for a woman developing uterine cancer is really one thing. 90% of all the uterine cancers or endometrial cancers that we take care of are associated with obesity. Women that are overweight and this is actually goes up literarily depending upon how heavy a woman is meaning a 200 pound patient versus a 300 pound patient actually will have different degrees of estrogen in her body. So the heavier woman is will have a higher concentration of estrogen in her bloodstream and what estrogen does is actually continually drives the lining of the uterus to grow and so the estrogen hormone on the lining of the uterus otherwise known as the endometrium is commonly similar to like fertilizer for your lawn. It stimulates the endometrium to continually grow but to keep the endometrium safe, a woman should have regular monthly cycles for their periods and that has caused by a change in the estrogen and progesterone concentration in her bloodstream and that triggers a monthly sloughing of the endometrium which is protective of the endometrium meaning protective at preventing that woman from developing uterine cancer. Commonly what we see in our overweight patients is that they stop having regular monthly cycles and the reason for that is that interplay between estrogen and progesterone gets distorted and there is too much estrogen in that patient's bloodstream leading to a constant driving of the growth of the endometrium and that month after month after month stimulatory growth pattern of the endometrium leads to abnormalities, leads to cancer. We will do a much better job at preventing uterine cancer if we can do something about the epidemic obesity in this country. So the most important thing a woman can do in this country to help prevent uterine cancer is maintain a good body image and body size. It is a lot more difficult to do and easier said than done, but it is incredibly important for patients that are overweight to understand that if you are 50 pounds overweight, and that depends on your height, but if you are 50 pounds overweight your risk is 10 times the regular normal population of developing uterine cancer and that number actually goes up, the heavier you are. If you are 100 pounds overweight, it is a higher risk. So it is very important for our patients to know the risk of obesity for other medical symptoms and medical problems. It is alarming to me how many women that develop endometrial or uterine cancer do not know the association of obesity to that cancer.

Massive Ovarian Tumor Removal Surgery..!!
 
04:18
Ovarian cancer is a cancer that forms in or on an ovary. It results in abnormal cells that have the ability to invade or spread to other parts of the body. When this process begins, there may be no or only vague symptoms. Symptoms become more noticeable as the cancer progresses. These symptoms may include bloating, pelvic pain, abdominal swelling, and loss of appetite, among others. Common areas to which the cancer may spread include the lining of the abdomen, lymph nodes, lungs, and liver. The risk of ovarian cancer increases in women who have ovulated more over their lifetime. This includes those who have never had children, those who begin ovulation at a younger age and those who reach menopause at an older age. Other risk factors include hormone therapy after menopause, fertility medication, and obesity. Factors that decrease risk include hormonal birth control, tubal ligation, and breast feeding. About 10% of cases are related to inherited genetic risk; women with mutations in the genes BRCA1 or BRCA2 have about a 50% chance of developing the disease. The most common type of ovarian cancer, comprising more than 95% of cases, is ovarian carcinoma. There are five main subtypes of ovarian carcinoma, of which high-grade serous carcinoma is the most common. These tumors are believed to start in the cells covering the ovaries, though some may form at the Fallopian tubes. Less common types of ovarian cancer include germ cell tumors and sex cord stromal tumors. A diagnosis of ovarian cancer is confirmed through a biopsy of tissue, usually removed during surgery. Screening is not recommended in women who are at average risk, as evidence does not support a reduction in death and the high rate of false positive tests may lead to unneeded surgery, which is accompanied by its own risks. Those at very high risk may have their ovaries removed as a preventive measure. If caught and treated in an early stage, ovarian cancer is often curable. Treatment usually includes some combination of surgery, radiation therapy, and chemotherapy. Outcomes depend on the extent of the disease, the subtype of cancer present, and other medical conditions. The overall five-year survival rate in the United States is 45%. Outcomes are worse in the developing world. Signs and symptoms Early symptoms Site of ovarian cancer Early signs and symptoms of ovarian cancer may be absent or subtle. In most cases, symptoms exist for several months before being recognized and diagnosed. Symptoms can be misdiagnosed as irritable bowel syndrome. The early stages of ovarian cancer tend to be painless. Symptoms can vary based on the subtype. Low malignant potential (LMP) tumors, also known as borderline tumors, do not cause an increase in CA125levels and are not identifiable with an ultrasound. The typical symptoms of an LMP tumor can include abdominal distension or pelvic pain. Particularly large masses tend to be benign or borderline. The most typical symptoms of ovarian cancer include bloating, abdominal or pelvic pain or discomfort, back pain, irregular menstruation or postmenopausal vaginal bleeding, pain or bleeding after or during sexual intercourse, loss of appetite, fatigue, diarrhea, indigestion, heartburn, constipation, nausea, feeling full, and possibly urinary symptoms (including frequent urination and urgent urination). Later symptoms The growing mass may cause pain if ovarian torsion develops. Symptoms can be caused by a mass pressing on the other abdominopelvic organs or from metastases. If these symptoms start to occur more often or more severely than usual, especially after no significant history of such symptoms, ovarian cancer is considered. Metastases may cause a Sister Mary Joseph nodule. Rarely, teratomas can cause growing teratoma syndrome or peritoneal gliomatosis. Some experience menometrorrhagia and abnormal vaginal bleeding after menopause in most cases. Other common symptoms include hirsutism, abdominal pain, virilization, and an adnexal mass.

Dr. McDonald explains the correlation between obesity and uterine cancer. Matt McDonald, MD: A very frequent question I am asked from my patients when diagnosed with uterine cancer is how did this happen or why did this happen to me. There is really two answers to that question. One is there is a genetic syndrome called Lynch syndrome or HNPCC that puts certain families at risk for uterine cancer and so if you have a patient or you come from a family where you see many cancers on one side of the family and those cancers that we worry about being linked to Lynch syndrome are colon cancer, uterus cancer, ovary cancer, kidney cancer, and some other more rare instances of certain brain cancers, you may actually be in a family that has a genetic mutation that puts a woman at risk for uterus and ovary cancer. The most important risk factor for a woman developing uterine cancer is really one thing. 90% of all the uterine cancers or endometrial cancers that we take care of are associated with obesity. Women that are overweight and this is actually goes up literarily depending upon how heavy a woman is meaning a 200 pound patient versus a 300 pound patient actually will have different degrees of estrogen in her body. So the heavier woman is will have a higher concentration of estrogen in her bloodstream and what estrogen does is actually continually drives the lining of the uterus to grow and so the estrogen hormone on the lining of the uterus otherwise known as the endometrium is commonly similar to like fertilizer for your lawn. It stimulates the endometrium to continually grow but to keep the endometrium safe, a woman should have regular monthly cycles for their periods and that has caused by a change in the estrogen and progesterone concentration in her bloodstream and that triggers a monthly sloughing of the endometrium which is protective of the endometrium meaning protective at preventing that woman from developing uterine cancer. Commonly what we see in our overweight patients is that they stop having regular monthly cycles and the reason for that is that interplay between estrogen and progesterone gets distorted and there is too much estrogen in that patient's bloodstream leading to a constant driving of the growth of the endometrium and that month after month after month stimulatory growth pattern of the endometrium leads to abnormalities, leads to cancer. We will do a much better job at preventing uterine cancer if we can do something about the epidemic obesity in this country. So the most important thing a woman can do in this country to help prevent uterine cancer is maintain a good body image and body size. It is a lot more difficult to do and easier said than done, but it is incredibly important for patients that are overweight to understand that if you are 50 pounds overweight, and that depends on your height, but if you are 50 pounds overweight your risk is 10 times the regular normal population of developing uterine cancer and that number actually goes up, the heavier you are. If you are 100 pounds overweight, it is a higher risk. So it is very important for our patients to know the risk of obesity for other medical symptoms and medical problems. It is alarming to me how many women that develop endometrial or uterine cancer do not know the association of obesity to that cancer.

Genetics Counseling for Ovarian Cancer Risk
 
04:04
From http://www.beetmedicine.tv/2009/04/one-in-10-12-women-with-ovarian-cancer-has-a-hereditary-cause-of-the-ovarian-cancer.html: One in 10-12 women with ovarian cancer has a hereditary cause of the ovarian cancer. Carefully collected three-generation pedigrees can help to determine which women should pursue genetic testing for hereditary causes of ovarian cancer, says Dr. Mary S. Beattie in this interview. BRCA1 and BRCA2 are genes that increase the risk of hereditary ovarian cancer, as well as hereditary breast cancer. Testing for deleterious mutations in the BRCA1 and BRCA2 genes can predict cancer risk, and can now possibly be used to guide treatment and entry into clinical trials. In addition to impacting the individual who receives genetic testing, other family members could be affected and possibly offered genetic testing as well. Interviewee: Mary S. Beattie, MD, MAS, Associate Professor of Medicine, Epidemiology, and Biostatistics Director of Clinical Research, UCSF Cancer Risk Program, UCSF Helen Diller Family Comprehensive Cancer Center

Identifying risk genes for endometrial cancer - 2013 Weekend funded projects
 
01:42
Endometrial cancer is the most common gynaecological cancer in Australia. Although prognosis is considered "good", about 20% of patients will have aggressive or recurrent forms of the disease, with poor survival. This research team has discovered genetic variants (changes in DNA sequence) which are linked with an increased risk. These variants are near two genes which are suspected of being involved in aggressive cancer. Dr Painter and Dr Edwards will use their Weekend to End Women's Cancers funds to work out whether these genes do increase a person's risk, and what role these gene variants play. This knowledge is an essential basis for research into future treatment options. About the Weekend to End Women's Cancers The Weekend to End Women's Cancers® benefiting the QIMR Berghofer Medical Research Institute (QIMR Berghofer) and Royal Brisbane and Women's Hospital (RBWH) is a 60km walk over 2 days to raise funds for breast and gynaecological cancer research and care.

Through The Generations - A Lynch Syndrome Family
 
03:14
Lynch syndrome is a hereditary cancer condition in which a mismatch repair gene, which ordinarily repairs errors in DNA duplication, is defective. As a result, individuals are predisposed at a very high lifetime risk of cancer, including an up to 85% risk for colorectal cancer, 65% risk for uterine cancer, 19% risk for gastric cancer, 13% risk for ovarian cancer and a higher than average risk for other cancer including cancers of the liver, gallbladder, kidney, bladder, prostate, pancreas, skin, brain and breasts. With genetic testing, there is hope...once diagnosed, annual cancer screenings take place and cancers can be treated or removed before becoming life threatening. By knowing our family history and having a great medical team, we live longer than ever before...as long as anyone else! So, learn your family history and share it with your physician. Protect your family and yourself.. Visit www.lynchcancers.com and embrace life!

New Findings on Surgery for Women With Cancer Genes
 
03:58
I'm Alex Villarreal with the VOA Special English Health Report, from http://voaspecialenglish.com | http://facebook.com/voalearningenglish Every year, one million women around the world are found to have breast cancer. Almost two hundred thousand others are told they have ovarian cancer. The decisions for treatment are more difficult when the women have abnormal versions of two genes called BRCA1 and BRCA2. The mutations in these genes can also increase the risk for other kinds of cancer, including cancer of the cervix, uterus and pancreas.Sandra Cohen has never had breast cancer or ovarian cancer. But she has the BRCA1 and BRCA2 mutations. So she decided to have doctors remove her breasts and ovaries. She made the decision after her mother and grandmother both died from the same kind of cancers. Doctors have known for several years that preventative surgery reduces the risk of ovarian and breast cancer for women with the mutations. But a new study also shows that these operations help those patients live longer. The four-year study involved about two thousand five hundred women with the genetic mutations.One of the researchers was Dr. Susan Domchek at the University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine. She said: "Women who had their ovaries removed had a decrease in the risk of breast cancer and a decrease in the risk of ovarian cancer. In addition, they were less likely to die of breast cancer, less likely to die of ovarian cancer and also had an improvement in their overall survival." The study found that none of the women who had preventative breast removal developed breast cancer. Seven percent later did among those who decided against the surgery. The rate of breast cancer was also seven percent among women who did not have their ovaries removed. Among those who did, the breast cancer rate was one percent. The study also found that the women who had their ovaries removed lowered their risk of death from ovarian cancer by almost eighty percent. Their risk of death from breast cancer was fifty-six percent lower, says Dr. Domchek. The researchers say women with a strong family history of breast or ovarian cancers should get genetic testing. Sandra Cohen did.She says: "Do some research with a genetic counselor. Meet some other women who have gone through it. It really will empower you to take some action." The study appeared in JAMA, the Journal of the American Medical Association.For VOA Special English I'm Alex Villarreal. (Adapted from a radio program broadcast 22Sept2010)

Dr. Judy Garber on genetic testing for BRCA / Dana-Farber Cancer Institute
 
02:13
Actress Angelina Jolie stunned the world with her Op-Ed in The New York Times, in which she shared her very private decision to have a preventive double mastectomy after testing positive for the BRCA1 gene mutation. But for Jolie, and many others, getting genetic testing and taking action may offer control and comfort. Judy Garber, MD, MPH, is director of the Center for Cancer Genetics and Prevention at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute, and one of the leaders of the Institute's Susan F. Smith Center for Women's Cancers. She talks about the BRCA test, family history and cancer risk, and preventive options for breast and ovarian cancer. Learn more about the Cancer Genetics and Prevention Program at http://www.dana-farber.org/Adult-Care/Treatment-and-Support/Treatment-Centers-and-Clinical-Services/Cancer-Genetics-and-Prevention-Program.aspx#1 Transcription: This test is a blood test, so it’s a pretty easy test to have. Almost everyone who recommends this test believes it should be performed with genetic counseling, so that women understand when they have their testing what they’re doing, what kind of information they’re going to receive, and what the implications of a positive or negative test might be. The question is really is, “Do you have the kind of family history or personal history that makes it possible that a BRCA1 or BRCA2 or other mutation might be present?” If you were found to have high risk of breast and ovarian cancer (and if you read Angelina’s piece, she’s very clear that the risks are much higher than the general population), would you be willing to do the kinds of things that would be recommended? They include much more careful monitoring—mammograms and breast MRIs and examinations on a regular basis, trying to find these cancers early for breast cancer, considering surgery to reduce risk, considering other strategies. Actually removing the ovaries can lower breast cancer risk, and since we have no good early detection for ovarian cancer, we often have to recommend women have their ovaries and fallopian tubes removed. It depends where in your life you are when you learn that you have this risk. Have you had your children yet? Have you even had a partner yet? Have you finished your family and you're ready to consider this? Have you seen cancer up close and you just don’t want to go there? And what are you willing to do? I’m seeing most people these days contact their primary care physician or their gynecologist. They're either tested by those physicians or they're referred to a center that does testing. If they’re positive, we hope they’ll all be seen in specialized centers, because in this area we have them, and we hope that we make women’s lives better, even if they have to go with a difficult diagnosis.

Lynch Syndrome is an inherited genetic disorder, (a mutated repair gene in the DNA), which predisposes that individual to a high risk of a myriad of cancers and typically at a younger age onset. It is estimated that 1 in 279 in the USA have Lynch Syndrome but less than 5% are aware that they have this Syndrome, leaving them vulnerable to developing cancer! Awareness is needed! The cancers most commonly presented are: colon, uterine, ovarian, stomach, but not limited to other areas of the body, such as, skin, ureter, kidney, pancreas and brain. KNOWLEDGE is key to saving lives. PROACTIVE medical surveillance and tests prevent or catch cancer in an early stage which means, better outcomes. A Lynch Syndrome Previvor is a person who has Lynch Syndrome (diagnosed through genetic testing) but has been proactive and has not developed cancer. These are courageous individuals who don't put their heads in the sand, when it comes to this hereditary cancer syndrome, but they educate themselves about how to protect themselves and their family from cancer and take back control of their health by being proactive.

What is Lynch Syndrome?
 
03:18
According to Scottsdale Healthcare’s Dr. Mike Janicek, Lynch Syndrome is as prevalent as the breast & ovarian cancer syndrome. Though Lynch Syndrome is hard to explain, what we know about this disease is that it doesn’t just affect the breast and ovaries. It is hard to categorize because it is a wide spectrum of diseases: brain cancer, stomach, duodenal, liver, gallbladder, kidney, uterus, bladder, bowel and even some rare skin cancers. Breast cancer’s sister is ovarian cancer, which is also part of Lynch syndrome. The most important thing you can do for yourself it is to be aware of your risk. Dr. Mike Janicek says, “Preventing cancer should be our supreme goal and one of the most powerful tools we have now is the genetic information that gives us very advanced warning before the cancer has a chance to develop.” Find out more about Lynch Syndrome by watching the video above.
