Hi Hells, I was refused the test too, I didn't have TN but my mum had died of BC after being diagnosed at 55 although she had it for a lot longer but didn't tell anyone sadly, and then I was diagnosed aged 45.
Having two sisters I thought we would all be tested on my diagnosis but I was told by my Oncologist that we were not raising alarm bells as we were both over 40 plus BC in a family alone isn't likely to be caused by a faulty gene, it's more common when there are also Ovarian and prostate cancers as the three are linked to a faulty gene.
My younger sister who is in early 40's even had to fight to get screened but insisted and now has annual mammograms, they told her she wasn't at high risk even with two family members with BC , she's pretty feisty so begged to differ!!
I would imagine you could pay for a private test but would need a referral. Xx Jo
