KALAMAZOO, Mich. (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - It's the story we've been talking about all day.

We sat down with a breast surgeon at Bronson Hospital on Tuesday, to find out more about what might factor into this type of decision.

Even if you are, though, genetic testing isn't for everyone.
Newschannel 3's Lourin Sprenger has more on the story with a Bronson breast surgeon.
