Have you spoken to a genetic counselor? Chek2 is a moderate risk gene. Typically a preventative dmx is not indicated. Do you have a strong family history of breast cancer ? Or other cancers? Chek2 raises the risk of colon cancer. What variant do you have of chek2? Some are worse than others.
Sorry you also have the chek2 gene. It’s no fun
