I wonder how many men will opt for castration if they find out they have the gene? :shock:

Although the most significant impact of the Hereditary Breast and Ovarian Cancer genes BRCA1 and BRCA2 is on breast and ovarian cancer risk in women, that – of course – is not the whole story. Risks for some other cancer types are elevated too, including breast and prostate cancer in men.

Not surprisingly given the impact that risk of breast and ovarian cancer has on women with BRCA1/BRCA2 mutations, the challenges that men in BRCA1 and BRCA2 families face have generally taken a back seat in research and writing about this condition. Nevertheless, the brothers, fathers, sons, male cousins, uncles, etc. of female mutation carriers do have elevated risks for certain types of cancer.

The answer is still the same; just because you care that gene it does not mean you will absolutely get cancer. Good preventative and proactive living is still the best.
This whole Angelina Jolie media buzz is putting her and her decision up on a pedestal where you will see a line of Sheeple women out to do what she did just because they want to be like her. Some will go against doctors advice and find a doctor to do because of fear. It has opened a Pandora's box that should never have been allowed to open. Jesicha's Hope believes in good preventative care; if you get cancer, deal with it in a straightforward naturally based fashion that has proven peer outcomes. This barbaric measure is ludicrous. Our blog this week says it all: http://jesichashope.wordpress.com/2013/05/14/preventative-mastectomy-an-answer-or-false-hope/

DING DING DING!!!!!!

According to an IBtimes article, a British man is the first person to have had his prostate gland surgically removed because he carries the BRCA2 "breast cancer" gene that's related to the BRCA1 gene suddenly made famous by Angelina Jolie's double mastectomy.

IBtimes reports, "Surgeons were initially reluctant, since the potential side effects of the operation include infertility, incontinence and sexual dysfunction."

But what the hell, right? If cutting off healthy organs is trendy enough for Angelina Jolie, it's gotta be trendy enough for everybody else... including men!
Medical self-mutilation... a new fashion statement for the chronically stupid!
