Help - I was just told I have BRCA2. In shock bc I have no family history. Just had a baby. Might want a second. Will be 39 this year. Would rather not have ovaries removed or mastectomy. Really scared - not sure what to do. Please help.

Sorry to hear you were told you might have this beast, but just to let you know there is hope. I would also like you to post this on the Breast and ovarian cancer sites here on CSN as you will get a lot more help in getting your questions answered.

Wishing you well
Hondo
