BRCA-2 Mutation is a quite common mutation for women with negative Breast Cancers. But men with Advanced Prostate Cancer, as well as those who are about to be diagnosed, who carry this mutated Gene, it is not common. Latest statistical data from 2 studies, one said 1.2% of all Men with Prostate Cancer have this mutation. Another study indicted it was 2% of all Prostate Cancers---for those that carry the Mutated BRCA-2 Gene.
Those with this mutation, will have a short Overall Survival, is the conclusionary analysis, of the studies. It appears as just one of many Prostate Cancer Forms, and that having this mutation, kind of makes it an Orphan Disease, within the overall, of all Prostate Cancers.
I am working with Foundation One, Tapur.org, and the Levine Cancer Institute to find those men who know they have this gene mutation, and to catalog, their treatment protocols, and to get a general history of their disease progress. I suspect many on this site do not know, their mutations, and have never been Gene Mapped.
If you are one, who knows that they have the BRCA-2, get back to me please, at user name Nalakrats. And yes I am one who carries this Gene Mutation. Yet my personal protocol has it in check, for now, and we are trying to figure out why.
