Both my mother and maternal aunt have been diagnosed with pancreatic adenocarcinoma. My question is: I have three siblings all in our late 40s, and three cousins the same. What are the recommendations for genetic testing and screening? My sister had an MRI, I'm not sure I will get it covered. Should we also be doing CA 19-9 blood tests (which were high in both my mother and aunt)? See answer
