Have your relatives had cancer – and you're wondering whether you are next? That’s what many "previvors" face. The word was created in 2000 by Facing Our Risk of Cancer Empowered (FORCE) to describe “individuals who are survivors of a predisposition to cancer but who haven’t had the disease." Breast and ovarian cancer previvors carry a hereditary mutation in BRCA1 and 2. They have not had cancer, yet, but they have an increased risk of getting the disease.
