Wednesday 2nd May 2018 - The actress Angelina Jolie helped raise awareness of the genetic risks of both breast and ovarian cancer after tests showed she had "faulty" BRCA1 and BRCA2 genes. UK researchers found that testing for these types of genes is more cost-effective than current family history-based screening if offered to every woman over the age of 30. Thanks to advances in technology, these types of genetic tests are a lot cheaper than they used to be, now costing around £175.The study was carried out by researchers from the Cancer Research UK Bart's Centre at Queen Mary University London, and was funded by The Eve Appeal charity.
