What is the KRAS-variant?

Cells are constantly undergoing a process of growth, repair, and death as part of their normal life cycle. The KRAS-variant is an inherited genetic mutation that impairs the cell’s abilities to communicate these signals for self-regulation, resulting in either unchecked cell growth or too few cell deaths, both of which can lead to increased cancer risk.
