      I had genetic testing done at my oncologist's recommendation and it was negative for the specific gene that was tested.

      What test? There are dozens. Some are for gene identification other are to determine levels of certain genetic markers in the blood. So depending on which test more or less determines if they is any benefit to periodic retesting.

      Why do you want to re-do the genetic testing? and do you mean the BRCA test?
