Information About the Breast Cancer Gene

The Decision to Find Out If You Carry a So-Called Breast Cancer Gene

Some people would jump at the chance to know if they are at risk for getting a certain illness. Others believe that ignorance is bliss. Whichever category you fall into, the decision to get tested for mutations in the breast cancer gene should not be taken lightly. Before you decide, think about how you're likely to react if the test shows that you carry a mutation. Would it increase your determination to get regular screenings and adopt a healthy lifestyle to improve your odds? If so, the test may be a good idea for you. Conversely, if you would face increased anxiety and depression about the possibility of getting breast cancer, you may be better off not knowing. In either scenario, you should still take action to prevent breast cancer, and carefully follow your doctor's advice about screening and prevention.
