Just wondering if any of you have heard of or had the genetic test called BART. I've heard that it has been recently developed and that it is a more thorough test than the BRCA 1 and 2 test that many of us have had. I tested negative for the BRCA 1 and 2 gene mutation in 2007.
I have two sisters and we are wondering about their risk for getting ovarian cancer since I have been diagnosed with OC. They are considering having their ovaries taken out but want to have as much information as possible to help them make a decision.
Thats why I am looking into the BART genetic test.
Also I'm curious about what some of you have done in terms of genetic testing to protect or inform other family members........sisters, daughters etc. What have you heard in terms of statistics...........if you do or do not have the gene mutation how does that effect sisters and other family members? Looking forward to any comments, thank you.
