My daughters PTEN test came back positive “you will be interested to know that we have identified an abnormality in the Pten gene in (daughters) sample. Interestingly, it would appear that this abnormality is only present in a proportion of her cells and this may mean it is less likely it is relevant to other members of the family”
Strange choice of words.
As she has already had thyroid cancer and has the Pten abnormality I’m guessing this means cowden syndrome. As Pten is a tumour suppressant gene it certainly means a greater risk of cancer throughout her life.
We have an appointment in a couple of weeks that came with the letter to discuss it.
