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.

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.

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)

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

Endometrial cancer, also known as uterine cancer, is the most frequently diagnosed gynecologic cancer and typically occurs in women who have already gone through menopause. According to the experts at The James at Ohio State, genetics play an important role, so that’s why they’re leading a study – The Ohio Prevention and Treatment of Endometrial Cancer Study – to identify genes linked to each patient’s specific cancer: http://bit.ly/2NyxVg9 Armed with this information, doctors can then create and launch personalized prevention strategies for at-risk family members, and by using genetic sequencing, offer further individualized treatment. The study is currently enrolling patients, and any woman who has been diagnosed with endometrial cancer can visit http://cancer.osu.edu/OPTEC to see if she’s eligible to enroll.

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.

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.

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 !

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.

Genetic Testing For Cancer: What's in Your Genes?
 
02:40
High-Risk Cancer Genetics Program Although approximately 70% of cancers develop by chance, some individuals have a genetic pre-disposition to developing the disease either because of an inherited abnormal gene (hereditary cancer) or a combination of genetic and environmental factors specific to their family (familial cancer) If you or a loved one has a family history of cancer, Memorial Cancer Institute’s High-Risk Cancer Genetics Program can help shed light on your cancer risk so you can make informed decisions about your health and focus on cancer prevention. Our comprehensive program identifies and manages individuals with genetic predispositions to developing cancer, including those with an increased risk of acquiring the disease due to ancestry, family history or personal risk factors (such as atypia or carcinoma in situ). A Specialized, Dedicated Team of Experts By employing a multidisciplinary approach that includes cancer genetics specialists, oncologists, as well as primary care physicians, our team works closely with each patient and their family to develop a personalized care plan. Team members include: Board-certified oncologists Cancer risk assessment counselor Integrative medicine specialists Oncology social workers Registered dieticians Together, our highly qualified specialists are committed to identifying individuals who are at a higher-than-average risk of developing cancer and to offer counseling and risk-reduction strategies for cancer prevention and/or early detection. We provide a range of diagnostic and support services including: Cancer Risk Assessment counseling Hereditary cancer risk assessment (with a specific interest in the genetic factors that influence breast, colorectal and gynecological cancers) Genetic testing Access to clinical research studies (for diagnosed cancer patients Please consult with your healthcare provider to see if our program is right for you, especially if you have a personal and/or family history of one or more of the following: Cancer (breast, uterine, colon) diagnosed at an early age (less than 50) Ovarian/fallopian tube cancer diagnosed at any age Multiple family members with similar cancers (breast, ovarian, colon, uterine) Two or more primary cancers in the same person A rare cancer such as male breast cancer or sarcoma Triple negative breast cancer diagnosed before age 60 Family history of known genetic mutation Breast biopsy showing atypia, lobular carcinoma in situ Multiple benign breast biopsies Ashkenazi Jewish ancestry What to Expect Our cancer genetics team will: Determine if you meet the criteria for risk assessment and/or genetic counseling Assist in determining your insurance coverage for office visits and testing Meet with you to conduct a personalized cancer risk assessment consultation Obtain prior authorizations as required for genetic testing or additional screening as recommended Review assessment results, explain findings, and together create a surveillance and/or intervention schedule With your permission, share the plan with your other physicians to ensure they have all the required information to make clinical or diagnostic suggestions With your permission, possibly present your genetic profile (not your identity) to a national group of genetic experts (Genetic Tumor Board) to determine if they have additional insight or expertise to offer. If so, this will be shared with you and your physician team accordingly.

The Connection Between Obesity and Uterine Cancer
 
04:19
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.

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.
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.

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.

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.

Colorectal Cancer Gene Screens
 
01:53
Were you born with a blueprint for cancer? It may be hiding in your genes. With advanced testing genetic counselors can screen for a specific type of colorectal cancer. "If they know that someone in their family has had colorectal cancer or endometrial cancer that's always a red flag," says Mary Ann Orlang, genetic counselor with the Regional Cancer Center, Lee Memorial Health System. Called Lynch Syndrome, the disease often appears before the age of 50 which is the recommended age for a colonoscopy screening. "Patients that have the syndrome have a genetic mutation that causes the adenomas or the polyps to progress more rapidly and turn into cancer much more rapidly then they do in a normal population," says Laurie Wise, nurse navigator with Lee Memorial Health System. Testing usually not found outside of research or academic medical centers, is available at the Regional Cancer Center. "It's looking for genes that are known to be related the hereditary colorectal cancer syndrome. It looks at actually genetic mismatches and specific chromosomes," says Orlang. Someone with Lynch Syndrome has a 70% chance of getting colon cancer over their lifetime. It also raises the risk of other cancers. A first diagnosis in a family has implications that spread through the family tree. "If this is positive, you're going to have to let your family members know. Your siblings, your cousins depending on which side the cancer is on," says Orlang. People who carry Lynch genetics and don't have cancer, have an opportunity, to catch disease at its earliest and most survivable stage. "The first thing we talk about is the need to have on-going surveillance, they have to be alert," says Orlang. So learning about Lynch may be a mixed blessing. "They can also identify the family members that may also be at risk and we can eliminate those cancers in those patients, which is incredibly exciting," says Wise.

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.

Ovarian Cancer Risk Factors - Summa Heatlh
 
01:19
Although ovarian cancer is the ninth most common form of cancer among women, it is the fifth most common cause of cancer-related deaths. This form of cancer is most common among women older than age 55. In terms of ethnicity, ovarian cancer is more common among Caucasian women than African-American or Latina women. The causes of ovarian cancer are not known, but genetics and environmental risk factors have shown an increased chance of development among women. Ovarian Cancer Risk Factors Family history. Women with family members who have had ovarian cancer are at increased risk of development. Also, a family history of the following forms of cancer can increase the risk of developing ovarian cancer: breast, uterus, colon, and rectum. Personal history of cancer. Women with a personal history of cancer, especially of the breast, uterus, colon or rectum. Age. A majority of women diagnosed with ovarian cancer are older than age 55. Never pregnant/infertility. Women who have never been pregnant have an increased risk of developing ovarian cancer. Estrogen therapy. Estrogen therapy is a typical form of treatment for menopause symptoms but, if estrogen is used without progesterone, ovarian cancer has been known to develop. Diet/exercise. A high-fat diet can increase the chance of several cancers, especially because such can lead to weight gain, which is a risk factor in itself. Ovarian Cancer Symptoms Typical symptoms include: Pressure or pain in the abdomen A swollen or bloated abdomen Trouble eating/feeling full quickly Urinary changes – frequency or urgency Some less common symptoms are: Fatigue Upset stomach or nausea Back pain Pain during sex Constipation Menstrual changes Treatment for Ovarian Cancer The primary form of treatment for ovarian cancer is surgery. In most cases, a hysterectomy (removal of the uterus and cervix) is performed. Depending on the individual case and the stage of cancer, chemotherapy may be recommended. Radiation therapy is rarely used for the initial treatment of ovarian cancer. In some cases, it is used to treat pain or side effects caused by the disease.

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.

Study says cancer gene screenings need to be expanded
 
02:40
CINCINNATI (WKRC) - A study released Thursday, December 15, has surprising results when it comes to what's in a person’s genes and their cancer risk. The study was taking a look at those who were at higher risk for certain cancers like colon cancer. Traditionally to have genetic testing counselors look for certain family traits and screen for a small number of genes. The conclusions that were published in Thursday’s Journal Oncology said people may need to expand that testing. The study involved more than 450 patients from the state of Ohio. Many who participated in the Tri-State were known to have a collection of risk factors for cancer called Lynch Syndrome. That means, “There's an inherited gene passed on through either the mother or father passed on to children. And if the gene, or an abnormal version of the gene, it increases their risk for colon and sometimes other cancers such as uterine, ovarian, stomach; a variety but the primary cancer is colon,” said Courtney Rice of Tri-Health. Researchers at the Ohio State University Comprehensive Cancer Center found one in six patients diagnosed with colon cancer had at least one inherited genetic mutation. Under current screening guidelines a lot of those patients would never be found. Usually to suggest testing genetic counselors such as Rice said they look for certain traits. “So the things that I would look for if I'm working with a family is if there are people in the family are if there are colon cancers diagnosed at age 50 and younger. If there are multiple people closely related or with some of these associated such as colon and uterine, we look for multiple generations.” The study showed health officials may need to broaden that criteria and the number of genes tested so people at risk don't get missed. The hope is if people find out they have a gene mutation linked to colon or another cancer, they could start screenings earlier than traditionally suggested. A lot of that screening also allows for intervention to fight cancer; for example, with a colonoscopy people can also remove pre-cancerous polyps to keep from developing this cancer.
