Hello ladies is there any of you out there that has been tested for the BRCA gene? I have spoke to a lady who has had breast cancer and she managed to get it done. I was 43 when I first got diagnosed I have always suffered with benign cysts from my early 20s. I lost my mum to Ovarian cancer 9 years ago. We lost her farther to lung cancer before I was born. I am in the middle of doing my family tree. A lot of my mum's relatives passed away at early ages unfortunately and I don't think cancer was a big thing back then because nobody really tested for it or knew too much about it....... I would love to hear any body thoughts. I believe a private BRCA test privately costs £2000 ?????
