In most cases, you will work closely with your healthcare provider to determine which tests are right for you. There are many panels to choose from, but your testing can be narrowed to select panels that you and your physician feel are right for you. For instance, your physician will determine if a full hereditary cancer panel, an internist panel, or a BRCA 1 & BRCA 2 panel will make sense based on your personal or family history of cancer. Most common testing is a full hereditary panel, which tests as many as 106 genes associated with higher risk cancers, respiratory diseases, and your body's response to certain medications.
Testing is actually more convenient than you may think. We send your genetic screening kit straight to your home and it's typically completed using an oral or nasal collection swab to gather a small sample, You have the option of completing your oral or nasal swab in the comfort of your own home or with the assistance of your physician at their office, whichever you prefer.
