    Comment:  My mother was diagnosed with ovarian cancer at age 50 and tested positive for BRCA 1. My sister and I both tested negative, and neither of our genetic counselors recommended preventative surgery, even with our mother's history. If you're interested in getting another medical opinion, I would highly recommend the genetic counselors at Kenneth Offit's office at Memorial Sloan Kettering. They are incredibly warm, supportive, and straightforward, and very accessible, even years later when I have questions.
