There is certainly a strong Family history.

Your Oncologist would ideally refer you to Genetics Counsellor and then after a comprehensive Assessment, making u understand the implications of a positive test, the short comings of a negative test ...would recommend Gene Testing and a customised age specific screening recommendation would be offered.

It's done systematically and scientifically and not as many think a click on Google to give u all answers.
