Oh, huh. The BRCA1 gene doesn't always mutate in a similar way, does it? What I mean is, if the cancers caused by BRCA1 aren't all formed by the same mutations and subsequently behave the same way. I've definitely heard that every cancer is unique to the individual, so maybe I'm working under the wrong assumption that everyone with BRCA1 related cancers has the "same" type of cancer (all equally aggressive, all immune/responsive to the same treatments, etc).
