Well-known cancer syndromes that can be inherited and confer increased risk of cancers

  • Hereditary breast and ovarian cancer syndrome:
  • Genes: BRCA1 or BRCA2.
  • Cancers: Breast, ovarian, pancreatic, prostate, melanoma
  • Women and men with BRCA1 or BRCA2 genetic mutations have a significantly higher risk of developing breast and other cancers than those without the mutations. Other cancers associated with the BRCA1 and BRCA2 genes include ovarian, pancreatic, prostate, and melanoma.
  • Mismatch repair genes that cause Lynch syndrome. This is a hereditary disorder caused by mutations in the mismatch repair genes MLH1, MSH2, MSH6, PMS2, and EPCAM. People born with mutations in these genes have a significantly higher risk of developing colon, endometrial, and other cancers such as stomach, pancreas, urinary tract, or brain.
  • CDH1. Mutations in the CDH1 gene are associated with hereditary diffuse gastric cancer, a rare type of stomach cancer, as well as breast cancer.
  • PALB2. Inherited mutations in the PALB2 gene are associated with an increased risk of breast cancer. Sometimes, this mutation can also be found in families with multiple cases of pancreatic cancer.
  • STK11. A mutation in the STK11 gene causes Peutz-Jeghers syndrome. People with this condition have a higher-than-average risk of developing cancers of the breast, cervix, ovary, gastrointestinal tract, and pancreas.
  • PTEN. Mutations in the PTEN gene have been linked to an increased risk of breast, head and neck squamous cell carcinoma, lung, and prostate cancers.
