Jolie Has Double Mastectomy to Thwart Cancer Gene Risk - Bloomberg

This will have a ripple effect on genetic testing ... mastectomy ... I have no clue .. I wonder if it's possible to find the exact BRCA1 gene variant that she carries. Quite curious to see the literature on a gene variant that will make non-science people decide on invasive surgery for a '90% protection' against cancer. 

I wonder if it's really too late to do the mastectomy after you discover you have cancer ..
