Genome wide association studies were used to identify gene mutations that are known to increase the risk of cancer. However, patients who find out that they have the mutation may not want to know that they have an increased risk of cancer. Moreover, it is difficult to identify which patient will actually develop the disease condition, which raises the anxiety level of individuals and affects their ability to choose their treatment.
