SIOUX CITY, Iowa (AP) - Those wanting to know if they are
genetically predisposed to developing some types of breast cancer
can get a free screening later this month.
     St. Luke's Regional Medical Center will provide
screening for the mutated BRCA 1 and BRCA 2 genes on Sept. 19 at
the "Architecture for Living" seminar in Sioux City. The test
requires a simple rinse of the mouth.
     Dr. Rebecca Rose with St. Luke's says abnormal BRCA 1 and BRCA 2
genes are responsible for only about one in 10 breast cancers. But
she says a person who has such an abnormality has an 87 percent
chance of developing breast cancer by age 70.
