The proportion of BRCA1/2 genes varies widely among populations. We investigated 52 cases of breast cancer: 24 cases of familial breast cancer, 22--early-onset (till 40 years) and 6--bilateral cancer. The frequency of carriers of mutations among familial cancer cases was 16%, among cases of disease till 40 years--9%. 538insC BRCA1 was the most common genetic mutation among hereditary cases of breast cancer.
