Khloe Kardashian and "momager" Kris Jenner have an argument in a clip previewing Sunday's upcoming episode of Keeping Up With the Kardashians. This one, however, isn't over a trivial matter.

Jenner is insisting Khloe Kardashian get the BRCA gene test, which checks for cell mutations and tells if patients are likely to get breast or ovarian cancer.

"I feel like you should really get on our bandwagon and try and get this DNA test done,” Kris tells Khloe, who simply isn't having it.

“I don’t want to, is the point,” Khloe says. “I don’t really care.”

“It’s unacceptable for you to have this technology at your fingertips, and not go out and utilize that,” Kris tells her. “It might save your life one day.”

Perhaps Khloe Kardashian had too much of a taste of death while caring for estranged husband Lamar Odom. She remained by his side for nearly a month straight, even forgoing showering for an entire week when he was first hospitalized for his near-fatal overdose in that Nevada brothel.

“I don’t care,” Khloe insists. “Fact: I’m going to die. You’re going to die. We’re all going to die.”

“Do you want to die when you’re 30?” Kris Jenner asks her middle daughter. “Or do you want to die when you’re 85.”

“I don’t care,” Khloe says one last time.

What's your take on the BRCA gene test? Would you get tested if you could afford to do so? Not all insurance companies will pay for the test, but of course money is no object in the Keeping Up With the Kardashians family.

Why do you suppose Khloe Kardashian is so adamantly opposed to having the BRCA gene test? Might she be afraid of the results?

Fans can tune in to Keeping Up With the Kardashians on Sunday night at 9 p.m. on the E! network, and see if Kris Jenner makes any headway in this discussion with Khloe Kardashian.
