BRCA2 and MSH6: Family finds it hard to discuss cancer & feelings
My name is Alice, I am 47 yrs old. I am curious if anyone out there has both tested positive for BRCA2 and MSH6 genes? I had breast cancer in my early 30’s that resulted in a double mastectomy after treatment. I also had a hysterectomy for atypical cancer cells before the cancer diagnosis. I am very curious if this is common? I am currently being tested for PBC and have bleeding of non gynecological issues. I went to a urologist yesterday and I have to have additional testing. I am so overwhelmed with all these tests and can’t keep up with everything. I honestly, at this point want to say no more drs.
Does anyone have these feelings too? My family doesn’t want to discuss any of my feelings or possible diagnosis and it’s something I have to process. Any suggestions?
Thank you for listening
