    Sequencing Cancer to detect munitions.

    I am having both my renal cell carcinoma and my triple negative breast cancer sequenced for mutations. Has anyone has this done for their cancer, and if so did it help direct your treatment?

      I had the BRCA testing done, if that's what you mean. It made no difference in my treatment---it was for my family, since it is hereditary. But, if you came up positive, you'd have to think about whether to get double mastectomy +/- oophorectomy.
      If you mean the Oncogene or Mammaprint, I had Oncogene done. If I had been even higher than I was, I might have had to go to chemo even tho lymph node neg (I had already been told if my tumor had been any bigger, node neg or not, I would get chemo).
