Gene Mutation CHEK2 and Cancer Risk

If you carry a mutation on the CHEK2 gene, it could mean you are at increased risk for breast cancer, ovarian cancer, prostate cancer, colon cancer, kidney cancer, thyroid cancer, brain tumors, and osteosarcoma.

Gene Mutation MSH2 and Cancer Risk

The MSH2 gene provides directions for repairing errors in DNA prior to cell division. A number of cancers are associated with defects in the this gene.

Gene Mutation MLH1 and Cancer Risk

People with the MLH1 gene mutation have Lynch syndrome, which raises your risk for ovarian cancer, stomach cancer, gallbladder cancer, and other types of cancer.

Gene Mutation ATM and Cancer Risk

Inheriting mutated ATM genes from both parents means you develop ataxia-telangiectasia (A-T), which increases your risk for lymphoma, leukemia, stomach cancer, brain cancer, ovarian cancer, breast cancer, skin cancer, liver cancer, and cancer of the larynx.

Gene Mutation PALB2 and Cancer

PALB2 is a gene that normally repairs DNA damage and prevents tumor growth. When it’s mutated, you are at elevated risk for breast cancer, pancreatic cancer, ovarian cancer, and Fanconi anemia.

TP53 Gene Mutation and Cancer Risk

An inherited TP53 mutation may lead to Li-Fraumeni syndrome (LFS), which may increase your risk for breast cancer, bone cancer, leukemia, colorectal cancer, lung cancer, and soft tissue cancers.

Gene Mutation PTEN and Cancer Risk

Inheriting a mutated PTEN gene means you may be at greater risk for breast cancer, thyroid cancer, uterine cancer, colon cancer, prostate cancer, and brain tumors.

Gene Mutation MUTYH and Cancer Risk

If you carry a MUTYH mutation, you may be at elevated risk for colon cancer. Find out what you need to know about the risks associated with MUTYH and how you can prevent them.

Gene Mutation STK11 and Cancer Risk

An inherited STK11 gene mutation may lead to Peutz-Jeghers syndrome (PJS), which may increase your risk of breast cancer, colorectal cancer, lung cancer, pancreatic cancer, stomach cancer, small bowel cancer, cervical cancer, and other cancers.

The AXIN2 Gene and Cancer Risk

People who inherit a mutated copy of the AXIN2 gene from a parent may be at higher risk of colon cancer.
