USA Today

Women who have a relative with breast cancer linked to the high-risk BRCA genetic mutation understandably worry about their own risk. Now, a new study suggests that women who don’t test positive for the mutations are not at an extremely high risk of getting breast cancer, even if they have a relative with BRCA-related breast cancer. Their risk is similar to that of women with relatives with non-BRCA-related cancers, the new research indicates.
