…as I re-read your first email to me, would she need to show symptoms first before any testing or screening can be done?

Hello Lisa,
Before we make that decision, is there such a thing as screening or genetic testing for this condition? I am not clear on that yet. We are in California, are there locations in our area?
Thanks for your help!

Great! I appreciated that. The results were negative, nothing there. Would love to get more info on the possibility of a genetic test or screening.

Just to update you, she saw a sports doctor who ordered at CAT scan and spinal xray this week. This was all because her neck hurt.

Thank you so much for the information! Yes a sort of step daughter's mother has this condition as well as her aunt. She and her father are always on edge when ever there is a back ache or a little bump on her hand. I was just thinking that if there was a test to find out if she has the gene, then it may ease the constant worrying of the unknown. Then again, knowing at a young age, 20 , may not be so great either. Her mother was diagnosed in her 30's. But if there have been some advances to this condition and early detection is a plus then maybe
going through a genetic test , if there is one, would be a good idea. Thoughts?

Is there a genetic test available for the children of Schwannomatosis patients who show no symptoms?
