Testing for hereditary cancers can detect specific, heritable, disease-related gene mutations that may increase the risk of certain cancers allowing an in-depth cancer risk assessment for each patient.
The critical goal is to detect cancer early and to give you the opportunity to maximize health outcomes for your patients. Patient-tailored screening programs, preventive measures and proactive treatment are possible for patients of a high-risk group. Early diagnosis can mean a better overall prognosis through a choice of surgical and non-surgical treatment options.

Breast cancer is one of the most common cancers in the world affecting ~12.5% of women during their lifetime. 5–10% of these patients have a hereditary form.
Mutations in the BRCA1 and BRCA2 genes are the most common hereditary cause. However, other genes such as ATM, BRIP1, CHEK2, PALB2, RAD51, etc. have also been associated with increased risk.
