The Future of Healthcare
Cancer Genetic Testing
If you or a loved one is suffering from cancer, one of the many questions on your mind might be who else will get it. Will I pass this cancer on to my kids? Clear Bridge Biomedics’ Cancer Genetic Test offers information on a wide array of genetic cancers including screens, diagnosis, and prevention.
Cancer Genetic TESTING
By using a genetic test for cancer, doctors can identify the root cause of an individual’s or family’s genetic contribution to cancer. The test also helps doctors determine individual relatives who are most at risk for developing the same cancer.
Prevent Genetic cancer
Having the genetic markers for cancer is not a guarantee you wil develop the disease. If your family has a history of cancer, there are steps you can take to prevent developing it yourself. A healthy diet, exercise, limiting alcohol, not smoking, and getting regular cancer screens are all great preventive measures to help keep you healthy!
Many cancers can be genetically influenced. Examples of genetic cancers include breast cancer (influenced by the BRCA1 and BRCA2 genes), colorectal cancer, and prostate cancer. These cancers, and many others, can be affected by both genetic variants and mutations.
Understanding your results
Genetic test results are complicated documents. Often, it takes an expert in the field of genetic counseling to help patients interpret the results and decide on next steps.
