I do not know my father. My mother had him put in prison when she found out he was molesting my sister and brother (sister was 6 and brother was 18 months). I have no desire to know him or his family, but genetically I worry about things.
I have already found that I carry MRSA Staph and have passed that to my daughter. We are both resistant to antibiotics for staph and it is hard for us to be treated when we get an infection.
I also worry that I could carry cancer or other genetic diseases. I have tested positive for Thyroid issues which do not come from my mothers side as the MRSA did not.
So.... I want to be tested to see if I carry the cancer gene so that if I do I can be sure to have scans regularly to ensure my health is well so I can continue to be there for my babies. I'm young so they tend not to check as much when you are my age but I'd rather be safe than sorry.
What do I ask my doctor to test for?
