Question normal

Dr. Lindner,

I congratulate you on your courage to face this intimidating diagnosis and for sharing your story with us.

As we know, certain patients do not end up expressing their aberrant genes. Do you know if scientists are making any progress in identifying genes that may be protective in those patients who would seem to be at risk for breast or ovarian cancer, e.g. BRCA carriers, but don't end up developing those diseases?

I couldn't find anything about this online, but I imagine that this may be very transformative in helping patients to make some of the tough decisions you had to make.

Thanks so much and best wishes to you for your continued health! :)
