BRCA1/2- mutationcarriers

SND-ID: EXT 0104

This study is part of the collection Scania Metadatabase for Epidemiology (SME)

Description Data and documentation

Creator/Principal investigator(s)

Håkan Olsson - Lund University, Faculty of Medicine, The Division of Oncology and Pathology

Description

The cohort, which is part of an international collaboration with IBCCS and Cimba, is covering all (both men and women) who have undergone mutation testing for BRCA1 or 2 in the Southern health region since 1993. It is the largest registry of hereditary cancer in Sweden with 1200 cases. Most individuals have filled in a questionnaire concerning diet, body weight and body measurements, family history, BRCA1/2 status, reproduction and use of oral contraceptives. Blood samples are collected from all participants.

Purpose:

To study risk factors studies in hereditary breast cancer
