At what age is the BRCA gene test recommended?

You are here:

Most health organizations recommend testing women who have a family or personal history from age 25. This is also the age at which it is advised to begin periodic screening for the early diagnosis of breast lesions, such as manual exams by a surgeon and imaging tests.

In general, it is recommended to start gynecological monitoring between the age of 30-35, as the risk of developing tumors at a younger age is very low (even for women who carry the genetic mutation).
