There is a new test to see if you are likely to get breast cancer in the future. But would you want to know?

Would you want to know?

In the modern day world, medicine is advancing more quickly than anyone ever thought were possible. Now, with the new genetic counselling, you can see which diseases you’re likely to get when you grow older, and when they’re likely to occur.

Diseases include Huntington’s Disease (which would be 100% certainty, as if you carry the gene, you are guaranteed to develop the disease) and Breast Cancer (which has other aspects too, for instance lifestyle and body size.

Stories have been told of women who have been told that their risk for breast cancer is high, so they have decided to have one or both of their breasts removed in an attempt to reduce the risk.. but has science now gone too far?

Who’s to say that doctors have the right to see into our future? Who’s to say that the future is supposed to be seen at all?

Keep looking for updates.. as this topic is guaranteed to be crucial in the development of the medical world!
