Persons with known BRCA1 or 2 mutations who have had one or more BC occurrences do not seem to be studied.
I heard recent studies from Dr.Narod for pre-vivors but no stats for those of us who discovered our status upon receiving a cancer diagnosis, hence the info needed by the medical comunity to test for possible mutation. Who is doing research on this population? seems with all the follow up appts it would be easy and reasonable to extract information for studies of a population statistically at the highest risk for recurrence or new primary diagnoses.
