      The BRCA gene is related to breast and ovarian cancer. If you test positive for either mutation you are more likely to get either or both of them, a geneticist will be able to interpret the results so that you have the information need to make decisions about treatment options, including prophylactic options.

      Angelina is considering a hysterectomy now that she's done the double mastectomy because of the BRCA issues. That gene is connected to both ovarian & breast cancer.

      Julianna,
      Breast, Ovarian and pancreatic to date. It is distantly associated with others but those seem to be the three I have seen most. Carm
