Re: Waiting time for BRCA test results

Hi Hollyberry,

 

Hopefully you have had your results by now - I have recently been tested and told it would take 3 to 4 months!  My oncologist told me on Friday that they come back more quickly if a mutation is found i.e. once they find one they can stop searching!  Otherwise they are searching every little bit of genetic material!

Hi Jill, thank you so much for replying. If I don't hear in the next couple of days I am going to have to chase it up again. It's just there all the time. Really appreciate you taking the time to understand and reply. Hollyberry x

Hi Holly - sorry you have had to wait so long to know your results -the anxious waiting is torture.I need to bite the bullet and do this at some point myself - like you say more worried for my child than for myself . Fingers crossed for you .Jill x

Waiting time for BRCA test results

I am in the process of going through genetic testing for BRCA 1 and 2. I had the consultation with the genetic consultant and had the blood sample taken on the same day. I was told the results would be back in 6-8 weeks. It has now been 11 weeks and I haven't received the results back yet. I am getting more anxious by the day and constantly watching for the post. I was diagnosed with breast cancer myself in 2013 but it is my children I am most concerned about. I am finding it more difficult to think about anything else at the moment and getting more stressed as time goes on. I rang to chase it up a few days ago and was told they would get back to me but have heard nothing as yet. Just wondering how long do people normally have to wait for the results? Sorry this has turned into a bit of an epic post but just really need to know now.
