Why Genetic Testing?

If cancer has affected you or a family member, genetic testing offers a vital tool to uncover inherited genetic mutations linked to specific cancer types. This testing focuses on genes known to be linked with familial cancers, aiding in early detection of hereditary cancers. Such results empower proactive measures, enabling timely interventions and therapies when the disease is most manageable, ensuring better control over potential risks.

Don't leave your health to chance.
