A genetic diagnosis can affect an entire family

Genetic test results may have health implications not only for an individual, but for an entire family. Identifying at-risk family members is one of the most important benefits of genetic testing.

Screening family members for known familial genetic variants gives those who test positive the opportunity to make informed decisions on prevention strategies.

For those who test negative, the results can bring peace of mind.

If you receive a positive test result, your family members have up to a 50% chance of also being at risk for the same genetic condition.

If you receive a positive test result, family variant testing can also help identify other family members at risk for the same genetic disease.

Family members who test positive can work with their doctors to make a plan for prevention or early detection of disease.

Blood relatives of patients who undergo gene or panel testing for a hereditary cancer syndrome and are found to have a positive test result, can receive testing at no additional charge.
