If you have a family history of breast/ovarian cancer your insurer should cover genetic testing. My understanding is that BRCA2 mutation while usually associated with breast/ovarian cancer also raises risk for pancreatic cancer. I would talk to a gyn/genetics counselor. Also, sometimes the companies that do the genetic testing will cover the cost when insurance doesn't - that is what happened in my case.
