I have the BRCA 2 mutation
84% risk of breast cancer
27% risk of ovarian cancer

I will be getting a bi-lateral mastectomy in the semi-near future

I'm so sorry. Your doctor should recommend mammograms as well as another test in the interim to ensure if cancer does visit, it's caught early and dealt with.

I already get mammograms. I just can't do one while going through IVF.

oh gosh! I did research on that gene connection many years ago. One of the reasons I work with a breast/ovarian cancer organization.

Best wishes with the IVF, too, I did that!
