Dear Nancy,

I missed this thread the first time around..Sorry about that...Congrats on your 2.5 years.

I would advise you to get the BRCA testing done. As Donna mentioned I believe your insurance company will pay for it.

MD Anderson did a retrospective study a few years ago regarding women with TNBC with no family history who had the BRCA mutation and the number was 20%. It is a blood draw. Sample is sent off to Myriad labs and you have your result back in two weeks. 

In the unlikely event that you are BRCA+ it has important implications for you and your family as a Certified Genetic Counselor can explain to you.

warmly,

Steve


I am a BRCA1+ grandson, son and father of women affected by breast/oc-my daughter inherited mutation from me, and at 36, was dx 2004 TNBC I am a volunteer patient advocate with SAGE Patient Advocates
