Re: confused?


Your aunts can easily find out the gene by contacting the genetics clinic who carried out the testing. They will have the results on file, their GP should do as well. You won't be able to be tested without this information.

Good luck

My fathers mother had breast cancer and had a mastectomy, my aunts get tested but the other day the consultant told my aunt that the people more at risk would be my grannys sons daughters. I went to my dr but he told me I had to find out what type of gene it was, my aunt doesn't know. Im now confused not sure what to do.

Do I approach my dr again?
