NOTE: Since its discovery in 1995, this type of hereditary cancer has changed from one type of cancer, caused by mutations in only one gene to several types of cancer, caused by mutations in any of many different genes. As a result, all labels used to describe this syndrome, such as ''breast cancer gene'', ''BRCA'', ''hereditary breast and ovarian cancer'' and ''HBOC'' tell only part of the story, leaving out well over half of those who are affected.  To better serve our patient group, we are in the process of changing our name and updating all resources to reflect the fully inclusive and future forward RISKY GENES™ brand.  We ask for your patience during this process.  

NOTE: This type of hereditary cancer has changed considerably since discovery, from one type of cancer caused by mutations in only one gene to several types of cancer caused by mutations in any of many different genes.  As a result, all labels used to describe our patient group have become outdated and so has our name.  To better serve you, we are in the process of changing our name and all resources to reflect the fully inclusive and future forward RISKY GENES™ brand.
