Hello.. I am writing you in hopes of guidance or ideas or maybe even you have other genetics testing that I have not been able to acquire. After being adopted at birth, at the age of 30 I found out my genetics history after finding out my local waitress of over 15 years was my biological Aunt. It’s a crazy story but it saved my life. My biological mother had succumbed to the breast cancer that is as of now chemo and radiation resistant and goes from breast to brain and is hormone driven from what we know so far. We have six documented generations of women killed by it that did not have preventative double mastectomies. I had a preventative double mastectomy 4 weeks after finding out and also have had a total hysterectomy. I am now 35. I am more less trying to guinea pig myself out for genetics testing because our daughter is now 10 and I will do whatever it takes for this genetic mutation to be identified. With that being said I am reaching out to see if there are any tests I have yet to receive or if you know of anyone who may study these rare aggressive forms of breast cancer? I’m an open book at this point and appreciate you taking the time to read this.
Myriad myRisk Hereditary Cancer Testing
Genes analyzed: Result: NEGATIVE
EPCAM (large rearrangement only)
The deleterious mutation was not detected in the BRCA1 or BRCA2 gene.
If you have any tips or guidance or have any testing available or would like to be the one to solve our hereditary mystery I would be forever grateful.
