If you decide to see a genetic counselor, she/he may have more recent information. Science is continuously advancing and there may be new developments already in the works.
If you decide to learn more about your genetic makeup due to a cancer diagnosis, and have been found a carrier for one of the above genes, you may be a candidate to participate on Prompt. I am currently a participant. Let’s help scientists and doctors learn more about cancer, so that eventually, they can create better target treatments for everyone. And who knows, maybe a cure too.
