Assessing a family history of breast and/or ovarian cancer (VIC)(fact sheet)

This fact sheet provides information about assessing family history for breast and/or ovarian cancer. Breast cancer is a common disease with 1 in 9 women possibly developing breast cancer before the age of 85. Ovarian cancer is not as common and 1 in 78 women will develop ovarian cancer in their lifetime. For most of these women, cancer will not occur until after menopause and usually for reasons unrelated to an inherited predisposition to breast cancer. A small number of women will have an inherited predisposition to breast and/or ovarian cancer. This is uncommon and is due to a change in a gene that normally protects against breast/ovarian cancer and will have been inherited from a parent.
