Genetic Cancer Testing involves a simple blood draw or saliva sample to look for potential gene mutations to determine your risk of 8 potential cancers: breast, colorectal stomach, uterine, melanoma, prostate, ovarian, and pancreatic.  A positive test can help you and your doctor make informed medical decisions about earlier screenings and preventative steps that are right for you.  

Testing can also provide an explanation to your doctor of your personal or family history of cancer to help identify other at-risk relatives for whom genetic testing is recommended.  

Genetic Cancer Testing may be right for you if your or a relative (including siblings, children, parents, aunts, uncles, and grandparents):

  • Have had a rare cancer
  • Have had cancer before age 50
  • Have been diagnosed with more than one cancer
  • Have had multiple relatives on the same side of your family with the same type(s) of cancer
  • Have had 10 or more colorectal polyps found during your colonoscopies
  • Tested positive for a genetic variant related to cancer risk
  • Are over age 18
