Advice Needed please

Hi Im new to this site and hoping to connect with anyone who knows someone with MEN2A? My 12 year old daughter is awaiting test results next week as to whether she has the gene. Can anyone shed any light on it? Anything is appreciated Mel

Hi Felix Thanks so much for the reply and information, I am very keen to learn more about MEN2A and to talk to others that have people they know affected by it. Best case is our daughter does not carry the gene. Thanks
