I’m BRCA 1 and 2 negative (and for Lynch Syndrome mutations), but my family history of ovarian cancer is very extensive with earliest onset at age 39. Is Mayo Clinic – or are other organizations you’re aware of – doing any research into additional genetic mutations? And how far away do you think we realistically are from having an “OVCA” type genetic test?

You may consider clinical cancer panel testing, which is available through some commercial laboratories. There are also researchers at Mayo studying other genes and mutations in those genes. Results of research studies are often not returned to the patients.
