Dr. Bonni Guerin, oncologist at the Carol G. Simon Cancer Center at Overlook Hospital in Summit and director of the hospital's Multidisciplinary Breast Conference, named several risk factors. Most relate to life events that maximize ovulation, which produces estrogen to rebuild the uterine lining after menstruation.
"Risks for breast cancer include if you had an early first period; if you never had a child; if you had a child later in life; if you had a late menopause; if you had more than 10 years of high-dose estrogen, such as in birth control pills; and if you used hormone replacement therapy," she said.
...
According to Guerin, only 5 percent of all breast cancers are associated with the genes, which are especially but not exclusively found in people with Ashkenazi Jewish, Icelandic, Norwegian and Dutch backgrounds.
"BRCA positivity doesn't necessarily mean the cancer you get is worse, but it does mean that you have a greater tendency to get it," Guerin said. "I've read risks as low as 30 percent and as high as 80 percent."
The average age for breast cancer in this country is 55 years old, she added.
"But for BRCA, it's younger," Guerin said. "So if any 32-year-old woman -- and not just Ashkenazi Jewish women -- walks into my office, and she has breast cancer, she's getting BRCA tested because that's just not right."
Another natural candidate for the $3,000 test, which can be conducted with blood or saliva, is someone who has bilateral breast cancer, meaning cancer in both breasts.
At Overlook Hospital, Guerin has helped develop a prevention program for all patients -- not just high-risk patients -- that encompasses a three-hour analysis of genetics, diet and lifestyle as well as a clinical exam and a digital mammogram with computer-assisted detection read by a specially trained breast-image reader. Other technologies are included, as needed.

According to Dr. Bonni Guerin, Director of Breast Cancer Treatment & Prevention at Overlook Hospital in Summit, "Across the board, 75 percent of breast cancer patients are cured, however for those women who have had a lumpectomy or mastectomy -- even if they have been told that all of the cancer has been removed -- about 15 to 20 percent will have a recurrence," Guerin said.
For women with a recurrence of breast cancer, the mortality rate is 99 to 100 percent, Guerin said.
She said traditionally chemotherapy has been administered to all women with breast cancer, but chemotherapy doesn't work on all types of breast cancer.
"The Tailorx 1 trial proved very effective in predicting who had tumors that were sensitive to chemotherapy and those who had tumors that were deaf to chemotherapy," said Guerin.
For example, two women of the same age and general health who had small tumors removed have different chances of a recurrence, Guerin said.
"The Oncotype test can now tell us that Jane has genetic material that couldn't find its way out of a paper bag if it tried -- meaning it is not likely to spread and therefore needs no chemotherapy," said Guerin.
"It can also tell us whether Sally has a tumor with genetic material that codes for protein and teaches cells how to replicate and break off and enter into the blood stream. And so for Sally, the test tells me chemotherapy is a must," said Guerin.
