My mum has BC young not sure age she was diagnosed but died from it at 34. Her mum my Nan died from Overian cancer I think at 61 my nan was one of 8 girls a number of them had ovarian cancer. I was checked for genes about 15 years ago but nothing showed Brac negative. I was supposed to have mri from age 30 but when I reached 30 was told wait until 35 then I never got called up so chased them at 37 had my first MRI and there it was already. I now had BC I was referred back to genetics who run more tests against I think about 36 known mutations and still nothing. They said they will offer treatments as if I was found positive as such a strong link and they will re-test every 5 years and see if it has been identified yet they learn of new ones all the time. I have had double mastectomy cancer side and preventative other side and overies removes. I have a twin sister she has had double mastectomy as we have same DNA and my younger sister of 4 years has had preventative double mastectomy. They will look into overies but once they are 40.
