Ask-the-Expert Online Conference

Question from CArlene: Do you suggest genetic testing for all women with breast cancer?
Answers - Lynn Hartmann No, we don't. It depends on the family history and the age of the woman when she is diagnosed, and also whether or not the information from genetic testing would help direct her care or the care of someone in her family.

This Ask-the-Expert Online Conference called Risk Reduction featured Beth Baughman DuPree, M.D., F.A.C.S. and Lynn Hartmann answering your questions about breast cancer risk factors and ways to lower your risk.
