BRCA Genetic Testing for Specific Forms of Cancer

Prostate Cancer

If you have been diagnosed with prostate cancer and carry a BRCA 1 or 2 genetic mutation, learning about staging (locally advanced stage or late stage) and treatment (surveillance, radical surgery, radiation therapy, hormone therapy or brachytherapy) may be helpful in your health decisions.
