I am really having a hard time with deciding if I want to do this test or not. After I had my hysterectomy and was diagnosed my doctor and I talked about it (along with my husband). It was never brought up again.
Since my chemo has ended I have been reading up on it and now I am scared to death to have it done. Everything I read basicly says that if I test postitive I stand a 85-90% chance of getting breast cancer. I feel like if I know it is positive I will be a hyper condriac (sp?) and with every little bump or anything I will be running to the doctor and driving me crazy. My nurse from the docs office and I were talking about it today and I told her I would have to be heavily medicated to stay sane and not go into worry over board.... lol
There is no history of breast or ovarian cancer in my family on either side. My aunt died of it but she married into the family so that is not a blood relative. There is history of lung cancer my dad's dad and grandfather passed away from it and my oldest brother succommed to a brain tumor.
I don't know. At first we were for it... Now I am not.....
HELP... Need advice
