The article mentions a $250 cheek swab test for breast cancer risk. These tests are being sold to all sorts of doctors, and interpretation is included. Is this test more or less accurate than blood testing done for a BRCAplus panel done by a geneticist? Are *all* genetic test results prone to this kind of error in interpretation, or just the cheap commodity ones? Which ones are better? Is the test itself inaccurate, the interpretation, or both?
Vague article is vague. Scaring people without actionable data is irresponsible and cruel, especially when we're talking about people who are concerned enough about these cancers to have sought out testing for risk.
