QUOTED. Feb. 19, 2019. Walton Taylor.
The American Society of Breast Surgeons published new guidelines, recommending that genetic testing should be offered to all patients with a history of breast cancer. See what the American Society of Breast Surgeons' president said about it here.
"I'm excited by our new ASBrS guidelines and look forward to the day when NCCN updates its guidelines also. The exciting new data demonstrated that about half of patients with breast cancer have clinically actionable mutations that are being missed when genetic testing is restricted to patients meeting current NCCN guidelines." –Walton Taylor, president, American Society of Breast Surgeons
