Confusing advice.

My sister was recently diagnosed with breast cancer (Stage 1, good prognosis). Her doctor recommended she have genetic testing after the surgery and radiation. I thought I'd go with her and learn about the topic and perhaps have myself tested. I mentioned it to my doctor and she said that, absent my mother's similar test (mother is long-dead from another condition), there's no point in my getting tested until after they know if my sister is positive for BACCa (I may be getting this wrong). Anyway...does any of this make sense to you?
