Technology: Next Generation Sequencing
Turnaround time: 3-4 weeks from receipt in lab
A polyp is a growth that protrudes from a mucous membrane. If someone has a hereditary condition that causes an increased risk of polyps in the digestive tract, usually in the colon and/or rectum, it is called Polyposis. There are various shapes of polyps that may occur. The thought is that polyps in the tract should be removed surgically to prevent a polyp to progressing to cancer. Currently, there are two methods to determine polyposis: endoscopy or genetic testing.
The same types of polyps that develop in hereditary polyposis syndrome can also develop in individuals without it. Compared to the general population, people with this syndrome typically have higher numbers of polyps, develop them at younger ages, and often develop them more quickly.
This test includes: APC, MUTYH
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.
