Genesys Diagnostics Basic Breast and Ovarian Cancer Panel
$2,200.00 per test
Helps individuals who want to detect risk of breast cancer by using the latest next generation sequencing unlike any other Clinical Diagnostics marketplace Meenta offers unfettered access to validated tests.
Purpose: A general screening to detect gene variants associated with breast and ovarian cancers
Early detection is the key to preventative and/or proper treatment of cancers.
Early detection can greatly improve prognosis
Sample type: Cheek swab
Technology: Next Generation Sequencing
Turnaround time: 21-42 business days
In breast and ovarian cancer the most common cause is due to alterations in the BReast CAncer 1 (BRCA1) and BReast CAncer 2 (BRCA2) genes.
Women with an inherited PALB2 gene mutation also have a higher risk for breast cancer. PALB2 creates a protein that works with BRCA2-to repair DNA damage. If this PALB2 does not release the protein then there is no repair of DNA and abnormal cells are produced. In over 30% of women these abnormal cells will become cancerous by age 70.
How do I interpret the results?
Genetic counseling is generally recommended for any individual taking this test and their family. A medical provider can request reanalysis of the variants, and this is recommended on an annual basis. Data from this next-generation sequencing analysis can be reassessed for the presence of any new variants that may be newly linked to established genes or to newly characterized genes and/or disorders identified since the data used in this report was generated. A charge may be applied for reanalysis. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more information at the time reanalysis is requested.
