When talking about genetic testing in patients with breast cancer, it is important to frame it as a personal choice that can benefit both the patient and their family, said Kristin Rojas, MD, breast surgical oncologist affiliated with the Brooklyn Breast Program at Maimonides Medical Center. 

While more patients and providers are addressing the topic of genetic testing, preimplantation genetic diagnosis for those who are hoping to have children is not talked about as much. Through this process, clinicians can select embryos that do not have the BRCA1 or BRCA2 mutation to be used in reproduction.
