I wonder if there is any proof that these genetic markers really

predispose one to cancer? It seems like bad medicine to remove perfectly healthy body parts as a "preventative" measure. Especially when there are many other known contributing factors as those mentioned below by deacon. They would have to do extensive long-term studies of people to see how many got cancer who have the gene and how many did not get it who have the gene. Does everyone that gets cancer have a genetic marker for that type of cancer? Why is it increasing, are there suddenly more people who have the gene? What is the proof of this??
