I had my genetic counseling appointment via video conferencing. It will take a week for the medical release forms that I need to sign and send back. One of them is to give permission for the genetic testing center to have slides of my tumor. Another is for blood samples. The tumor testing will take a month and they will be looking if the tumor has characteristics of Lynch Syndrome. if it does then they will do DNA testing on my blood. If I do have Lynch Syndrome then they would recommend removing my ovaries and fallopian tubes. I am also going to sign release forms for them to have access to the pathology, surgical reports of my parathyroid surgeries for testing for Multiple Endocrine Neoplasia. That syndrome can make someone predisposed to developing various cancers.
