My mum is a month post chemo after finishing 6 sessions first line treatment. She had OC Clear Cell Stage 1c/2. We are awaiting our first post chemo appointment with consaultant when a letter came through today explaining that mum had been refferred for genetic testing for BRCA1+2 genes. This has petrified me as I have researched alot about OC in general and other implications such as the genetic side. I could have sworn our consultant said that mums particular type of cancer (clear cell) is not a genetic type of cancer. At the time I did not question her and after a few weeks i thought hmm, no that cant be right. So anyway, we now have this letter and I am so scared mum may come back positive which means I am 50% likely to carry the gene. Does everyone who had OC have to hae the genetics test? Is it normal procedure? I am so scared as i know girls as young as me (24) who have opted for surgery to reduce risk. I just cant believe i need to think about all this, Im still getting over the shock of mum getting cancer in the first place. I think where me and mum are so close the last year has been so difficult. And now we have to await these results. Has anyone been through genetics testing? Is it normal procedure for OC patients?
