I’m new to the forum. I had my first appt. with Clinical Genetics last week, referred as I was diagnosed with breast cancer aged 30, and my father had leiomyosarcoma of prostate and lung sarcoma. I was told it could take up to 12 weeks for the results to come through, and I was wondering how quickly other people got theirs back?
It was Google – I hadn’t heard of the TP53 mutation before my appointment, only BRCA1/2, so I wanted to find out a little bit more. I was pleased to come across this site – Google can often bring up information that is more unhelpful and worrying than useful, but the information here is very comprehensive and well-presented. I hope I get a good result, but if not I am glad to know that there is somewhere I can go to for advice…
Welcome to the forum. It always seems to take a long time – it took me 12 months to find out I am at risk and I still haven’t even been tested yet (16 months on) because another family member is on a very long waiting list too and they must be tested first.
