Easy tools for sharing results with your healthcare provider.
Most cancer is known as sporadic cancer. This cancer occurs in people who donít have a family history or changes in their DNA that would increase their risk for cancer. On the other hand, hereditary DNA changes are present since birth and some of these changes can increase the risk of developing cancer. Our tests look for such cancer-causing changes (pathogenic variants) in certain genes.
The Genetic tests screen a number of known genes related to hereditary cancers. The goal of every test is to determine a patientís risk of cancer. This knowledge can help your physician to develop the appropriate or preventative treatment plan for early detection. If the results of your test indicate an increased risk for cancer, your doctor may order tests like mammograms, colonoscopy and CT scans for any possible diagnosis and immediate intervention.
