Dr Tuya Pal - Moffitt Cancer Center, Tampa, USA

Dr Pal talks to ecancertv at ASCO 2016 about a study that looked at the uptake of BRCA genetic tests among young cancer survivors aged 50 or under. In particular, they compared black, hispanic, and non-hispanic white women.

The study found that there were large disparities, with significantly fewer black people undergoing BRCA tests.

Dr Pal suspects that lack of information is the main reason for these differences, but says that further research is needed to fully explain them.
