Hello! I'm a mom to three children, my son is almost 12, my daughter is almost 8, and my youngest son is 15 months. We are a military family for many years, and are stationed out west. My Aunt had breast cancer. My mother is on her 3 round of cancer. She had breast cancer twice, and a mastectomy on her right breast. She also just finished her third battle of chemo and raditioan in the last two weeks for esophageal cancer Today I had an appointment with my doctor and we did the lab work for the BRAC testing. He said it should be back in a week. I have MANY questions, and am very nervous about this. He is adamant if I have it everything (uterus, ovaries, both breast) must come off. I am 32 years old, my mother was 41 when she was first diagnosed. This scares me, and kind of seems extreme. I am using this week to research like crazy about my options. When I went to get a mammogram I started crying when speaking to the technician when I was trying to explain what the doctor said. She said that wasn't true, that if I tested positive I could just be monitored closer if that is what I choose. I am new to this, and do not know much. Any good links, resources, advice for a terrified mom?
