A powerful tool for cancer
A cancer diagnosis is stressful and overwhelming.
We are here to help.
Knowing your genes can help guide you and your doctor to the most effective treatments, bringing you closer to beating cancer and staying healthy in the long run.
Genetic testing and cancer
Predictive genetic testing is the type of testing used to look for inherited genetic mutations that may put a person at increased risk for certain types of cancer. This type of testing may be advisable:
For a person with a strong family history of certain types of cancer, to see if they carry a genetic mutation that increases their risk. If you have an inherited mutation, you may want to be tested for cancer early, or even take steps to reduce your risk. One example is testing for changes in the BRCA1 and BRCA2 genes (which are known to increase the risk of breast cancer and some other cancers) in a woman whose mother and sister had breast cancer.
For a person who has already been diagnosed with cancer, especially if there are other factors that suggest the cancer may have been caused by an inherited mutation (such as a strong family history or if the cancer was diagnosed at a young age). Testing can show if the person is at increased risk for other types of cancer. It can also help other family members decide if they want to be tested for the mutation.
For family members of a person who is known to have an inherited gene mutation that increases cancer risk. Testing can help them know if they need testing to look for cancer early, or if they should take steps to try to reduce their risk.

How much does genetic testing cost?
You have a lot on your mind, and the last thing you need to worry about is another medical expense.But think of it this way to give balance to what it means to invest effectively in healthcare.
1. You typically spend an average of 2000 to 8000 dollars a year (sometimes more) on exploring alternatives to solve your symptoms in the hope of feeling well and maintaining a better quality of life in the long term, right? However, you realize that all that emotional and financial effort end up in a passing wellness between trial and error, and still you don't feel any health condition improvement right?
2. On the contrary, your DNA profile does not change throughout your life and you simply invest on a one-time and lifetime solution for genetic testing, which opens the door to the possibility to achieve wellness and maintain a proactive quality of life in the long term.
3. In conclusion you'll finally take control of your health with evidence-based scientific information and precision recommendations based on your genetics. You will experience feeling better about your actual health problems and discover potential health issues that you are not aware of yet to be proactive about them.
4. On the other hand, it is possible that your health insurance may cover the costs of your genetic test and we invite you to contact your health care provider to explore if any of our genetic tests are covered.
