Genetic Testing for hereditary Cancer
Genetic testing for hereditary cancer syndromes can help identify your risk of developing cancer. Your health care providers may recommend you be screened for a hereditary cancer syndrome, especially if you have been diagnosed with cancer at an early age or if certain cancers run in your family.1
GenPath, in collaboration with GeneDx, Inc., offers a comprehensive menu of genetic testing for a variety of hereditary cancers. People who meet certain criteria, including their family history, age of onset of cancer, aggressiveness of cancer, and other factors may benefit from genetic testing. Visit the GeneDx site to learn more about hereditary cancers.
