    Mine was done by gargling scope and spitting it in a container till I had enough to fill sample cup. And that was it. Had to wait a few weeks for results.

    The test can be administered orally or blood can be taken. I had a blood test. It took about two weeks to get the results back.

    I had the same test. Compared to all the other tests it's incredibly simple.

    I did a blood test. They send it away to the lab, and you get the results in a week or two. They test for brca1, brca2, and you can also get tested for the p53 gene.

    I had the BRCA gene test and all they did was draw blood.
