Medicare paid for my genetic testing BUT my mother and cousin and I had all had breast cancer…my cousin twice. I do have a genetic mutation. I had no problem deciding on the bilateral mastectomy. I think it depends on your and your family medical history.

Sandy – you're right about mastectomy. Although I wasn't full mastectom, mine was "partial" which took me from about a "DDD" or "F" down to what I call "A-" or pretty well flat. Am so much better off…no more shoulder pain, I can actually sleep on my stomach without first having to pull my breasts into position(!!!), and no longer down by my waist. Whew…I'm never looking back.
