There is an excellent newsletter posted on the website of the Gilda Radner Familial Registry for 2004. It has interesting articles about HRT, health insurance/employability, genetic counseling (did you know that those pesky BRCA gene mutations can help men know if they're genetically predisposed to breast and prostate cancers?), and prophylactic oophoerectomy.
Knowledge is power, and this newsletter is a wonderful source.
My brother was diagnosed with prostate cancer at a young age (51) just a month after I was diagnosed with uterine and ovarian cancers when I was 49 (also considered a young age), and I am working on entering my family into the registry.
Look at this free newsletter posted at www.ovariancancer.com. There's a lot of information there, and on the site.
