Hi Sandi, CHEK2 (Checkpoint Kinase 2) is a rarer mutation. Based on the genetic information, what changes or medical decisions, if any, have you made?

For anyone interested, here’s more info on CHEK2 https://www.facingourrisk.org/understanding-brca-and-hboc/information/hereditary-cancer/other-genes/basics/chek2.php

Sandi, have you heard of or registered with the Prospective Registry Of MultiPlex Testing (PROMPT) study?
The PROMPT Study is a research registry enrolling people who have had panel testing in order to learn more about cancer risks associated with gene mutations like CHEK2. See more info here:

When I spoke with the genetic counselor I believe she signed me up for the prompt study as well as the Vanderbilt study. Should I be getting any information from them? I really don’t know what to expect.
