Oct 26, 2019 · Genetic tests available for breast cancer detection in Breast Cancer

Yes I would especially if they are triple negative. In the last few years so many new discoveries have been found to help with the treatments.

I wish I would have done the testing prior to treatments. I was diagnosed with triple negative in ‘15. Had a lumpectomy as it was found early and small, then chemo and radiation. I was 65 but wondered why it turned up so late in life. So I saw the genetic counselor and we decided to look at my relatives and there was a number of my generation that had the secondary cancers of the BRCA cancers. I agreed to be tested and I am BRCA2. So I decided I needed to do more to keep the cancer away. Fallopian tubes and ovaries removed in ‘17, bilateral mastectomy and reconstruction in ‘18. Now having all this behind me, I feel great and very pleased with all my care at Mayo Rochester.

Hi Colleen! I had TNBC in June of 2015, stage 1, surgery then chemo and radiation. I questioned this on each visit and looked at my relatives for some answers as I was 65 when diagnosed. Decided to to do genetic testing based on relatives and found out I’m BCRA2. So this presented more decisions…. Fallopian tubes and ovaries removed late Nov 2017 and bilateral mastectomy with reconstruction Sept 2018. Currently doing very well and looking forward to surgery in April to place the implants.
