I had Stage 3C ovarian cancer at 53, almost 5 years ago. I did not test positive for for any of more than 22 genes, but my husband has two aunts who had cancer, one breast, one ovarian. We don’t know if they carried any of the genes. Could my husband carry a gene that we should be concerned about? We have a daughter and son. Is there gene testing for males?

Males can undergo genetic testing. Consultation with a genetic counselor will help guide whether he should be tested and what tests to do.
