Exclusive genomic checkup
We now offer acute blood genetic tests to prevent and manage any risk of illnesses linked to your personal indications and family history.
How the examination is carried out
The price of a genetic examination will depend on the number of genetic parameters recommended to the patient
The patient has a strong family history of cancer involving breast and colorectal cancer from her maternal side.
During the pre-test consultation, our genetic counsellor makes the assessment that his/her family history is compatible with a hereditary predisposition of cancer.
Our physician prescribes a genetic analysis for a targeted panel including the following genes: APC, BMPR1A, BRCA1, BRCA2, CDH1, MLH1, MSH2, MSH6, MUTYH, PALB2, PMS2, PTEN, TP53 which are associated to the hereditary predisposition of breast, ovarian and colorectal cancer.
Prevention recommendations include:
A pathogenic mutation is found in BRCA1 conferring an 85% risk of developing breast and ovarian cancer, prompting our physician to propose risk-reduction measures including:
- More frequent cancer surveillance options
- Prophylactic surgery
- Treatment guidance
- Testing of first degree family members
These measures allow an appropriate management ultimately decreasing the initial higher risk of developing a cancer to the average normal risk.
