You are the Patient.
When you were just a baby, your grandfather died of Huntington's disease. Huntington's is a debilitating mental disease that develops in middle age and often results in death before the age of 50. Unfortunately, there is no known cure for the disease. You know that there is a chance that you carry the Huntington's gene. There is a simple genetic test that can determine whether you are a carrier.

Do you get tested? or is ignorance bliss?
