In some cases, the likelihood of receiving an uncertain result is greater than receiving any definitive answers on genetic testing (this is particularly likely on the larger gene panel tests that include multiple “newer” genes). Uncertain results can cause confusion and distress, and until they can be interpreted with a greater degree of certainty may not change any recommendations for you or your family. Faced with this possible outcome, some people may choose to defer testing until more information becomes available.
