Decision Tool for Women BRCA Mutations

by on May 16, 2012

A little over a month ago I discussed treatment options for women who have been diagnosed with ovarian cancer here.

I even mentioned that there was a decision tool out there but it was being updated.

Well, it’s still being updated.

But in the meantime, the good folks at Standford University’s Medical School Cancer Institute have released a decision tool specifically for women who are known to have the BRCA genetic mutation.

Below is a screen shot of the tool.

While it doesn’t address the entire population, it will hopefully be a great tool for navigating the scary post-diagnosis time and being more informed about treatment options.

If nothing else, it’s another tool for our ovarian cancer awareness toolbox.
