Are These Genetic Cancer Tests Perfected? (Angelina Jolie)

I have friends who did this - went and took out, and took off everything because their genetic test showed high cancer risk. Are these tests accurate, or is this still controversial, with more tests needed to confirm the science behind it? How would you feel if you went and got cut up and such tests were proven junk science down the line? It just seems like such a leap at this point - using genetic testing to prove if one could develop cancer, and give people a percentage too. We don't even have cure for cancer yet, nor testing for mental illness. We still don't know what every gene is responsible for. It just seems so extreme to start taking out your ovaries, taking off your breasts, etc. What's next? Taking off your testicles?
