About Genetic Cancer Testing

Protect Your Health


Genetic testing is the only way to determine whether or not you have a gene mutation responsible for hereditary cancer, and can offer earlier detection than traditional screening methods, like MRI's and CT scans1. Early detection, helps SAVE LIVES!
Genetic testing is not just about satisfying your curiosity. Knowing you have a high risk for hereditary cancer will enable you to take steps to protect you and your family's health, such as:

  • Additional screening to catch cancer early 1
  • Risk-reducing lifestyle changes
  • Risk-reducing medications or surgery/personalized medicine.

Who Should Consider Genetic Testing?
You should always take proactive measures to safeguard your health. However, there are certain criteria that are used to determine if the genetic cancer test is right for you.

We have provided a screening tool: A two minute quiz, to help determine if you would benefit from hereditary cancer genetic testing.

THE SCIENCE BEHIND

GENETIC CANCER TESTING


We are committed to educating, empowering and building awareness in the fight against cancer! We work diligently to provide you with resources and information that can save lives!

If you or a loved one has battled cancer, this information could save your life. About 10% of all cancers are caused by inherited genetic mutations. If you've had cancer and it was caused by one of these mutations, your kids could be at risk and if your parents, grandparents and other blood relatives suffered from certain types of cancer, you could be at heightened risk.
To find out your risk level
, take our genetic cancer pre-screening quiz by clicking on the 'TAKE THE QUIZ' button to your left.

The quiz takes less than two minutes and can help you decide whether further screening tests are needed.

Frequently Asked Questions

Why Test?


Watch the 'Why undergo genetic testing?' video by clicking here, to get answers to frequently asked questions.

No. Even if a cancer pre-disposing mutation is present in a family, it does not necessarily mean that everyone who inherits the mutation will develop cancer.

About 5% to 10% of all cancers are thought to be related to gene mutations that are inherited or passed down through the family.

Having an inherited genetic mutation does not mean you will develop cancer. It means you are at a higher risk for developing a certain type or types of cancer.
To learn more, click on our Know your family history page.
Genetic testing analyzes your genes, which are the instructions encoded in your DNA. Your genes help determine your hair and eye color, height, and other physical traits that make you who you are.
Genetic testing looks for variations in your genes that can lead to disease.

Testing for a hereditary cancer can help you understand your risk for developing a second primary cancer. Testing can also help you and your healthcare professional identify and manage an existing hereditary condition, revealing your risk of passing on an inherited gene mutation to your child and detecting if your family has hereditary cancer genes to bring awareness.

In hereditary cancer, an increased risk of developing certain cancers is passed down through families via their genes. Getting tested can help you learn if you have an inherited risk, which can empower you to be proactive about not only your health, but the health of your family.

In addition, genetic cancer testing can help:

  • Provide valuable information for use in customizing medical management plans/personalized medicine.
  • Determine whether you have a genetic mutation known to increase you or your family members risk for certain inherited cancers
  • Help your healthcare professional make a timely and accurate diagnosis
  • Enable your healthcare professional to better predict disease aggressiveness to assist in making more informed treatment decisions.
  • Assist your healthcare professional in making important decisions about the management of your disease.*

Testing for a hereditary cancer risk helps you and your healthcare professional make the best choices for preventative care.

Knowing your family history is important, but testing can give your doctors a more accurate picture of your risk.

To begin the process, simply proceed to request your kit and a counselor will contact you to assess coverage and get you connected with one of our doctors to get the testing process started.

The laboratories who process your samples are CLIA- and CAP-certified and follow the same stringent medical privacy policies and practices shared by the rest of your medical team and our network.

This includes adhering to the safe and secure storage of all personal health information in a HIPAA-compliant manner. Learn more about our privacy policy at: Privacy Policy.
In recent years, scientists have discovered a number of mutations that can contribute to a person’s risk of developing certain cancers. Mutations that have been found, can be linked to: breast, uterine, ovarian, colon and prostate cancer as well as some other, less common types of cancer.

To begin the process, simply visit our "How do I take the test?" page, by clicking here certified health advocate will contact you to assess coverage and connect you with one of our doctors to get the testing started.
Through the Affordable Care Act, most health insurance companies will cover the cost for genetic counseling and testing for people who meet the specified criteria, as genetic testing is now classified as preventative care, requiring no out-of-pocket cost for those who are deemed eligible. However, some plans still don't recognize that requirement yet. Medicare, Medicaid, or other federally funded programs will pay only for tests that meet their coverage criteria and are reasonable and necessary to treat or diagnose a patient. To learn more, visit our How do I take the test page.
Your health insurance may cover a simple, at-home Genetic Cancer Screening kit. Currently we provide patients with At home Genetic Cancer Screening kit services at NO COST to them, if they have one of the coverage plans listed below:

  • Medicare Only [Part B]
  • Aetna Medicare Advantage PPO
  • Cigna Medicare Advantage PPO
  • AARP HMO & PPO Plans
  • United Healthcare PPO
  • Care Improvement Plus
  • State Medicaid (click here for a list of insurances we accept, shown by state)

At this time, no other plans are accepted.

However, please check back in the near future. New health plans are being added on a continual basis as plans begin to open more options for patients to have preventative care concerning genetic cancer testing.

Proactive genetic testing can give you insights into important health risks based on your DNA. Genetic testing and counseling can assist you in making informed medical decisions.

You can then partner with your physician to seek early care, lifestyle modifications, and even initiate an early intervention to prevent the onset of disease.

If a person knows they have a higher risk of cancer, this helps in several ways: (1) a person could change their lifestyle to prevent the disease, and (2) a person could be more diligent in testing and going to the doctor since early detection and treatment is better than dealing with a disease which is at a further, developed stage.

No. GINA (The Genetic Information Nondiscrimination Act) keeps insurance companies and employers from discriminating based on information found in genetic screenings. The Affordable Care Act explicitly protects against discrimination not only of pre-existing conditions, but of those found through genetic testing.
