My sister was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2008 at the age of 30, she was tested and showed 2 tyoes were found, during her treatments of raditation she developed a 3rd type of breast cancer. She was tested positive for BRCA1 and 2, now my new OBGYN has read up on this and wants me to get tested for the gene. My old OBGYN never even mentioned it to me that is why I am wondering would it even be worth my time, please help. Thanks.View Thread
I work with a lady that has breast cancer and yes this is possible. She has her treatment in the morning and then comes to work in the afternoon. She does get sick but she hides it from everyone. Also she only lost a little hair and it was hard to tell unless you look closely. SHe even went and had a wig made that looked like her hair to wear when she started losing more of her own. Since it looks naturalk it is hard to tell. Hope this helps, you know thi person more than I do and hopefully you can find your answer soon. Hope this helps.View Thread
