More Information about Genetic Predispositions to Cancer
Between five and 10% of cancer cases are inherited. Individuals with a genetic predisposition for developing the disease will have a far higher chance of developing cancer within their lifetime and at an earlier age.
Genetic testing can look for specific inherited changes (mutations) in a person’s genetic make-up. Genetic mutations may have multiple different effects on a person’s health. Mutations that are harmful may increase a person’s chance or risk of developing a disease such as cancer. Genetic testing can help determine whether a family has a hereditary cancer predisposition syndrome. Individuals who have genetically higher risks to develop certain cancers are recommended to follow high-risk cancer surveillance and management.
If you have any of the following you might consider CGX testing:
• Several first-degree relatives (mother, father, sisters, brothers, children) with cancer.
• Many relatives on one side of the family who have had the same type of cancer.
• A cluster of cancers in your family that are known to be linked to a single gene mutation (such as breast, ovarian and pancreatic cancers in your family).
• A family member with more than 1 type of cancer.
• Close relatives with cancers that are linked to rare hereditary cancer syndromes.
• A family member with a rare cancer such as breast cancer in a male or retinoblastoma.
• A physical finding that’s linked to an inherited cancer (such as having many colon polyps).
• A known genetic mutation in one or more family members who have already had genetic testing.
