Hereditary cancer is cancer that runs in families. This survey seeks to understand the support needs and health experiences of Australians with an increased risk of hereditary cancer, with a focus on breast, ovarian and prostate cancer.

This survey is being conducted by Pink Hope, a patient-focused organisation that supports people to understand and reduce their risk of hereditary cancer.

The results of the survey will be used to inform a report that describes the experiences of people with hereditary cancer risk which will be used to drive Pink Hope’s support, education and advocacy moving forward.

You are eligible to complete this survey if:
  • You carry a known genetic mutation related to breast, ovarian or prostate cancer (some examples are: BRCA, PALB2, CHEK2, ATM, or RAD51C),
  • Have undergone genetic testing for a cancer gene mutation related to breast, ovarian or prostate cancer, resulting in inconclusive findings or a variant of unknown significance (VUS), or
  • Have a significant family history of breast, ovarian and/or prostate cancer.
