In brief: No

If you are at high risk for hereditary breast cancer, you may undergo a simple blood test to determine if you inherited one of the mutations associated with breast cancer. If you have this mutation, any of your children could be tested, as well.
Keep in mind that the presence of this mutation does not always translate into a 100% risk for developing breast cancer.

In brief: No currently

Breast cancer is not one of the diseases tested on unborn babies.
Most breast cancers are sporadic and not passed through families. There is a brca gene that is passed through families. There are certain indications for testing.
