Testing for gene faults in people with Jewish ancestry
If you are over 18 and have Jewish ancestry (at least one Jewish grandparent) you can now be tested for gene faults in the BRCA genes using a simple saliva test.
Jewish people have a higher risk of having a BRCA gene fault which could increase the risk of developing certain types of cancer.
The BRCA gene test will identify those people who may be at higher risk of developing these cancers
leading to more cancers being prevented or detected earlier. Find out more and register for the test here: NHS Jewish BRCA Programme
