Genetic testing will clear your mind of any uncertainties and will give you choices to make the most informed decisions regarding your health. If your family has a history of cancer, then you may have a higher risk of developing cancer. Genetic testing will be able to confirm if you are at an increased risk.
If the results do return positive, then you can be proactive and be vigilant of early detection by doing regular clinical breast exams, mammograms, or self-breast exams. Keep in mind that you may get overwhelmed during and after the process. Talk to a professional if you begin to become too overwhelmed, distant, or uneasy.
