Description

myCancerRiskDNA is a genetic test based on Whole Exome Sequencing (WES) that provides an analysis of 40 genes related to hereditary cancer.

This genetic test helps you to know the risk of hereditary cancer and if necessary allows the genetic specialist to perform specific follow-up tests to develop a preventive action plan.

Why is it important?

If you present a pathogenic variant in the genes included in the panel, your risk of developing cancer increases throughout your life. Knowing this risk is useful for both the patient and their families as it allows the implementation of screening strategies and risk reduction options.

myCancerRiskDNA is a genetic test based on Whole Exome Sequencing (WES) and the subsequent analysis of 40 genes related to hereditary cancer.

Who is it for?

It is a genetic test indicated for:

  • Persons with a family history of cancer specifically with family members who have developed cancer at an early age (<50 years).
  • People with various types of tumors.
  • People with cancer, in order to know their possible hereditary nature.

What will you receive?

  • Your specialist will receive a complete report of results, which will later be provided to you, with detailed information about the variants detected and the implication for you.
  • Genetic counseling that will explain the results of the test.
