    Sisters, Beyoncé and Solange Knowles have taken a DNA test following their father, Mathew Knowles’ public revealing that he was diagnosed with breast cancer earlier this year.

     According to a South African publication, the 67-year-old father spoke out about his diagnosis on Good Morning America, saying he was “doing good” after his surgery in July.

    E! News reported that Mathew’s family had been by his side throughout his journey and was even his first call after his diagnosis.

    “It’s genetics. It also means that my children have a higher chance, a higher risk. Even my grandkids have a higher risk. And they handled it as they should. They went and got the test.”

    The genetic testing revealed that Mathew had the mutates BRCA2 gene, which also put him at a higher risk for prostate cancer, pancreatic cancer and melanoma.

    Mathew revealed that he went to his doctor and got a mammogram done after he saw recurring dots of blood on his shirt and sheets.

    “I told my wife I saw a dot of blood on the sheets, so I immediately went to the doctor, got a mammogram.”

    However, Mathew revealed on the Good Morning America interview that he was struggling to understand why he had the condition.

    “Of all the things I could get, why would I get this? Why me?” he told Michael Strahan, the show’s host.
