Improve the Effectiveness of current medicines
Avoid Drugs that will not be effective
Reduce Potential Negative side-effects
Avoid Drug combinations that can bring serious
Test # 2 - the Hereditary Cancer Test determines if you have any of the mutated genes that can lead to the following 12 cancers
Who should take the Hereditary Cancer Test?
Anyone who has cancer ... has immediate family with cancer …or has
extended family with cancer should consider taking the test. It could give you
peace of mind knowing that you do not have any of the mutated genes that can
lead to cancer.
On the other hand, it could show that you are at risk for one or more cancers
and it can give you and your primary physician information that could result in
early treatment or a preventative plan. Early treatment is a key to successful
treatment of cancers.
Covered by Insurance – because insurance companies recognize that it is less expensive to pay
for prevention than to pay for treatment, this test is covered by Medicare, TriCare, and most
commercial insurance providers.
There is no need to take this test if you have no history of cancer in your immediate or extended
family. That does not mean you are free from potential cancers for other reasons, but it does
mean you are unlikely to have inherited the cancer-causing mutated genes.
The Hereditary Cancer test examines 105 gene mutations that are known to potentially lead to one of twelve cancers listed below.
If one of your patients has any of the known mutated genes, the Hereditary Cancer Report will identify one of the five potential outcomes for that gene mutation so that you can construct a treatment prevention plan for your patients.
The results of the hereditary cancer test will show in the ‘TEST RESULT SUMMARY” sections:
2. Likely Pathogenic
3. Uncertain Significance
4. Likely Benign
This hereditary cancer test shows whether the patient has gene mutations that can lead to one of the following twelve cancers:
