It is not only from inherited cases, but also those with no familial link. ... People who possess the mutation have a 50 percent chance
of passing it on to next. if a male carriers are not affected by the disorder, but they can pass on the defective to next generation.
Each cell in the body contains two copies of each gene: one that originally came from the egg of the mother and one from the sperm of the father.
A gene with a defect that causes a particular disease may be passed through generations of a family without causing illness.
However, if a child inherits two genes with the defect, the child will develop the illness.
