Who should be tested?
HerediGENE is designed for individuals or families, meeting one or more of the following criteria:
- Early age of onset of any type of cancer.
- Individuals with multiple primary tumors.
- Bilateral breast and/or ovarian cancers.
- Same type of cancer occurring in close relatives.
- Cancer incidence in multiple generations of a family.
- Rare tumor occurrence at any age.
HerediGENE provides valuable information that can be utilized for reducing the risk of cancer development by assisting the treating physicians to individualize surgical and pharmaceutical management. In addition, it can be used to identify those family members at risk of developing cancer who can benefit from risk reduction management. Furthermore, those family members that do not carry the pathogenic mutation identified in the family can be relieved of the stress of developing hereditary cancer and forego unnecessary interventions.
