Hereditary Cancer Screening

Do you have a family history of Cancer?

Our Hereditary Cancer Next Generation Sequencing panel covers a wide array of genetic mutations that may lead to a higher risk of different forms of cancer.

We search for the most important and relevant known genetic sequences for hereditary cancer risk.

Genesys Diagnostics offers Genetic Counseling to review results with a specialist and discuss any clinically significant results. We will facilitate a meeting between the counselor and patient/provider to discuss results.

Process and Results

Hereditary Cancer Screening is done through non-invasive sampling using a buccal swab (cheek swab), although blood sampling can also be used in some cases.

Our lab has a 3 to 6 week turnaround time for results, after prior authorization.

Results will be available on our online portal, please ask your provider for details.

Who is this test for?

This test is for anyone that wants comprehensive information about how their genetic makeup may affect their risk for cancer, especially those individuals with high risk factors.

Genetic testing for hereditary cancer includes genes that are linked to an increased lifetime risk for multiple cancers such as: breast, colorectal, ovarian, uterine and others.
