Hereditary cancers analysis

Life expectancy has increased in developed countries and it is estimated that 1 in 2 men and almost 1 in 3 women will develop cancer throughout their lives *. Knowing the genetic predisposition to develop this disease or not helps to diagnose it early, apply less aggressive treatments and increase the chances of cure.

There are multiple factors that influence the development of cancer among them our lifestyle and the genetics we inherited from our parents. The hereditary cancer test includes studying the known genes involved in most types of hereditary cancers.

How does it work?

  1. elige tu test genético
    Choose and suggest an analysis for your patient
  2. frotis bucal para análisis
    Your patient will receive its DNA sample kit at home
  3. instrucciones de uso
    One of our partner labs will make the analysis
  4. instrucciones de uso
    A specialist will explain the results by video-conference
  1. What are these tests?

    They are tests that study the genetic material (DNA) present in oral cells, which detect mutations in genes that are susceptible to different types of hereditary cancer.

    The hereditary cancer test is aimed at detecting mutations in known genes that are predisposed to cancers with a genetic component.

  2. Who are they targeting?

    To people with several relatives affected by cancer and suspected hereditary cancer.

    To people who want to know their genetic susceptibility to develop cancer in relation to the general population.

  3. What can they contribute to the patient's daily life?

    When a person has hereditary susceptibility to cancer, the specialist will establish periodic controls to follow up more closely for their early detection and to be able to treat it at the earliest stage.

    The study can determine if a person has an increased likelihood of cancer or has the same as the general population. It is important to stand out that carriers of a mutation in these genes have a greater predisposition to get cancer, but it does not mean that they will suffer with certainty. Otherwise, a negative result does not imply that sporadic (non-hereditary) cancer cannot appear due to bad habits of life. For this reason, preventive measures and detection programs established for the general population must be followed.

  4. How is the sample taken?

    The patient receives at home by courier a sample collection kit with very easy to follow instructions and an informed consent that must be signed. The sampling is very simple, quick and painless. You must only maintain the precautions detailed in the kit. Once made and given notice, a courier will come at patient’s home to pick it up and take it directly to the laboratory for analysis.
