How will CGx testing benefit YOU?
Genetic testing can help determine if one is at an increased risk of developing hereditary cancer. In addition, our CGx test helps guide physicians to pursue preventative measures, which may lead to early detection and treatment of the condition. Accuracy of results is crucial.
Who is at an increased risk for hereditary cancer?
If you or your family have a history of any of the following:
Some people are genetically more likely to develop certain types of cancers, and cancer genomics helps to uncover these risks. After receiving the patient’s DNA sample and carrying out a thorough test using a non-invasive oral swab, we then forward your information to the lab for processing. The lab compiles the results into an in-depth yet easy to understand report detailing all the information you need to know. Using the most advanced sequencing technology on the market, we provide incredibly accurate results which physicians can then use to create a personalized therapy based on your genome.
“I already know I have a family history of cancer. Why should I get tested?”
Testing for a hereditary cancer risk helps you and your healthcare professional understand your risk so you can make the best choices for preventive care. Knowing your family history is an important first step, but testing can give you a more accurate picture of your risk.
“I already have cancer. Why should I get tested?”
Testing for a hereditary cancer helps you and your healthcare professional understand your risk for developing a second primary cancer. This information can allow you to make the best choices for preventive care.
