Hereditary Cancer Screening

Hereditary Cancer Screening

Genetic testing for cancer can help your employees, by providing awareness of their personalized DNA makeup and can accurately establish whether genetic mutations are found in their body.

What is Hereditary Genetic Cancer Screening?

Hereditary Cancer Screening is a type of genetic testing aimed at identifying inherited mutations in genes that could increase your risk of developing certain types of cancer. Unlike cancers caused by lifestyle factors or environmental exposures, hereditary cancers are primarily the result of gene mutations passed down from one generation to another. By analyzing your DNA, usually through a blood sample or saliva test, healthcare providers can assess whether you have inherited mutations that make you more susceptible to cancers like breast, ovarian, colorectal, and other forms.

What are the benefits?

Hereditary cancer screenings can identify employees who are at an elevated risk for developing certain types of cancer. Early identification allows for targeted surveillance and preventive measures, such as more frequent check-ups or even prophylactic surgeries, that can ultimately save lives.
