Certain genetic variants can make some people’s risk of developing cancer significantly higher than that of the average person. Cancer is brought on by mutations in certain genes that result in abnormal and uncontrolled cell growth. What many people do not know is that is that these genes can be passed down from one generation to another, even if undetected. Genetic testing can help guide patient and healthcare professionals’ decisions about treatment or prevention plans for patients that have a personal or family history of cancer.
Our hereditary cancer screening identifies the risk of developing breast, ovarian, prostate, colon, pancreatic and uterine cancers. We provide DNA sequencing for specific panels which allows us to focus on certain areas of interest.
