Genetic testing can make a major contribution to the fight against Coronavirus / COVID-19. Find out how a simple saliva test can help hospitals manage during the coronavirus outbreak.
Discover how your DNA can determine your risk for cancer. 98 genes. 25 hereditary cancers. One of the most comprehensive tests on the market. Inherited genetic mutations can increase your cancer risk. Knowing your risk can enable you to manage your health proactively.
- With only a saliva sample, you can identify your risk for 25 hereditary cancers by analyzing 98 genes from your DNA.
- A detailed test report includes a personalized health risk management plan, enabling you to review with your doctor and take control of your health.
Lifetime Cancer Risk
Early cancer detection dramatically improves survival rate.
The test looks for mutations in 98 genes associated with 25 Hereditary Cancers including Breast, Ovarian, Prostate, Colon, Stomach, Head and Neck cancers.
You receive a report that includes information on the presence or absence of mutations associated with increased cancer risk.
You can work with your doctor on a screening program. This may include starting screening at a younger age, or getting screened more frequently so cancer can be detected early.
Your doctor may prescribe preventative medication to reduce cancer risk. Individuals at a higher risk for cancer can benefit from taking approved drugs such as tamoxifen and raloxifene to lower the chance of developing certain cancers.
Your family members can also determine their risk status and take charge of their health. Parents, siblings, and children may have up to a 50% chance of carrying the same mutation, putting them at increased risk.
Inherited genetic mutations can increase your cancer risk by up to 40 times.
- Healthy individuals who want to know if they are at an increased risk for cancer.
- Individuals in certain ethnic groups (eg., Ashkenazi Jewish) that have an increased risk for certain cancers.
- Individuals with cancer who want to understand if their cancer was hereditary, and if they are at an increased risk for other cancers.
- Individuals with a family history of cancer:
- A combination (usually 2 or more) of cancers on the same side of the family.
