Basically it shows if the cancer is due to a gene mutation, and one that could possibly be passed along to your children. It also shows whether you are at risk for ovarian cancer (which is closely related to breast cancer) I also had it done in 2007, and it was negative, which was a relief for my daughters, as there was absolutely no history of breast cancer in our family.
The insurance company refused to cover it at first, as they stated that it was only covered for patients being diagnosed 40 and younger (I was 44 at diagnosis), but when the lab resubmitted it, they ended up paying it. I wanted the results regardless and was willing to pay for it even if they didn't pay, but it was quite a relief not to have to do that!!
