What is a DNA Cancer Test?
Hereditary DNA changes are present at birth and some of these changes can increase the risk of developing cancer. Our tests look for such cancer-causing changes in certain genes.
The goal of every test is to determine a patient’s risk of cancer. This knowledge can help your physician to develop the appropriate or preventative treatment plan for early detection. If the results of your test indicate an increased risk for cancer, your doctor may order tests like mammograms, colonoscopy and/or a CT scan for a possible diagnosis and immediate intervention.
Type of Cancers we check for:
Our DNA Cancer Test check for increased genetic cancers including some of the most common cancers: Lung, Breast, Colorectal, Prostate, Oral, along with Stomach, Bladder, Pancreas, Kidney, Thyroid, Ovary and others.
Who Should Get Tested?
This test is not for everyone; only high-risk patients should be tested.
If you have ever had cancer, or have a family member that was diagnosed with cancer, then you are typically considered to be at high risk.
Mutations Can Increase Genetic Cancer Risk by 20 Times.
Everyone inherits genetic variations from their parents. Some variants, called mutations, may be harmful and cause diseases, like cancer. A single mutation can increase your risk of cancer by 20 times.
Individuals who inherit mutated genes associated with cancer:
- Have a greater risk of getting cancer
- Tend to get their cancers earlier in life
- The cancer is usually more aggressive
Genetic cancer testing allows you to understand your risk and manage your health plan.
It is well-accepted that the prognosis for cancer survival is higher when detected at early stages. The survival outlook is assessed by the 5-year survival rate stratified based on stage of detection. Some examples are shown below.
- Colorectal cancer: Stage one has more than 90% survival rate, while stage three and four detection survival is as low as 10%.
- Breast cancer: Stage one has almost a 100% survival rate. Stage four cancer has only 22%.
Individuals who know they have inherited an increased cancer risk can work with their doctors to plan for earlier and more frequent cancer screening.
In Many Cases Survival Rate with Early Cancer Detection is 90% -100%!

PGx Testing – A Beneficial Ad-On!
Find out if the medication your taking for your on-going chronic condition(s) is causing harm in other areas of your health!
Pharmacogenetic testing (PGx) looks at how genetic makeup affects your body’s response to medications via drug-to-gene and drug-to-drug testing. In doing so, it aims to develop a strategy to optimize drug therapies.
Why conduct a PGx Test?
- Provides A Detailed Finding
- Genetic + Drug-to-Drug Interactions
- Prescribe Precisely
- Fast Turnaround Time
- Patient Profile + Physician Access
- Covered By Medicare
- Benefits YOU!
Knowing a patient’s genotype before administrating medication can aid physicians in administering the optimal medication dose and potentially reduce the risk of adverse events. It has been tested and PROVEN to reduce the adverse effects that some patients experience due to improperly metabolized medications.
