Hello @marvinjjc and welcome to Mayo Clinic Connect. I appreciate you sharing your experience with phyllodes tumor. As this is a rare type of tumor, I'm wondering if any others in your family have had this diagnosis as well. Did you learn any information about the source of these tumors?

Hi! I’m not 100% sure as I was adopted as a baby. That being said, I do know there is a history of breast cancer on my fathers side (2 of his sisters and his mother) and on my mother’s side (her sister). They are unsure of what types of BC it was. I was tested for the BRACA gene which came back negative, but I was also told that it would be more accurate if they were able to test a biological family member who had BC in order to get the correct gene variant.
