Hereditary or Predisposition Cancer Genomics
Molecular testing looks for specific inherited changes (mutations) in a person’s genetic make-up. Genetic mutations may have multiple different effects on a patient’s health. Mutations that are harmful may increase a person’s chance, or risk, of developing a disease such as cancer. Inherited mutations are thought to play a role in 5-10% of all cancers. These particular conditions are considered hereditary and appropriate genetic testing may be used to determine an individual’s risk.
By analyzing a patient's DNA we are able to search for specific genetic variants that put one at an increased risk of Hereditary Cancer.
G7 Diagnostics uses the latest advances in Next Generation Sequencing (NGS) to analyze a patient’s sample. Thus, providing comprehensive reports of genetic variants and risk factors. The ordering physician, supported by our genetic counselors, is able to formulate a treatment protocol to address any negative findings. Awareness of one’s risk factors allows patients and their physicians to take a proactive, rather than reactive approach to managing identified risks.

WHO IS AT RISK?
No genetic test can say whether you will develop cancer for sure. But it can tell you if you have a higher risk than most people.
An individual with a personal history of cancer
An individual with one or more family members diagnosed with cancer under the age of 50
An individual with multiple family members possessing different cancers
An individual with a family member who has had hereditary cancer genetic testing and variants were identified

WHY SHOULD PATIENTS GET TESTED?
Starting cancer screening tests earlier
Getting screened for that type of cancer more often
Watching themselves closely for signs or symptoms of that kind of cancer
Preventive medications or surgery if recommended by a healthcare provider
