You and your doctor would have a number of options to discuss based on your test results. One option involves the use of prescription drugs such as tamoxifen to reduce the risk of breast cancer or oral contraceptives to reduce the risk of ovarian cancer. Other options include increased surveillance and preventive surgery.
