I am wondering if anyone out there has had the genetic testing done. It's the BRCA1 test. If so, did you also get the BART test done? Is it really necessary? I had the BRCA1 test done, and was told that if it's a negative result it is a good idea to have the BART test done as well. Problem is that test is not covered under insurance and is about $700 to be done. I am stressing as to whether I should do it or not. I haven't gotten the first test results back yet. It takes a couple of weeks. So I have time to decide. I will talk to my onc and see what he thinks.
