Genetic testing has been on my mind of late.
Mum has been avoiding getting a genetic test to see if she carries the same gene for ovarian cancer that her mum had, as she "didn't want to live with that knowledge" and finds the whole prospect of knowing too heavy to bear.
I've been recommended to have the testing too, as well as a genetic test to rule out a possible coeliac diagnosis (oh dear god please no! i can't live without pizza!!!)
What other genetic tests are out there now?
Would you have it done?
Have you had any genetic testing?
Would you consider it a comfort or a burden?
