It sounds like he will be seeing one of the genetic councillors who will take his family history, talk though any issues and maybe sign consent forms. They wanted to know that I understood what they were doing and how much information I wanted to receive. You are very much in control and they are very professional. They will then do the blood test. But, you can always ring and check.
Hope this helps.
Hi, I am being treated at Addenbrooke’s so have been on the breast cancer gene research program that Cambridge Genetics are running with all patients. They picked up that I have an alteration on my chek2 gene which raises my risk of bc from 12% to 22%. The genetic team at Cambridge are excellent and yes it is just a blood test, but the results do take several weeks to come though.
They are offering my female relatives an NHS gene test to establish if they too have this gene variation.
