CGX Testing

Cancer Genetic Testing (CGx) DNA cancer testing.

Hereditary or Predisposition Cancer Genomics
Molecular testing looks for specific inherited changes (mutations) in a person’s genetic make-up. Genetic mutations may have 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. Inherited mutations are thought to play a role in 10% of all cancers. These particular conditions are considered hereditary and appropriate genetic testing may be used to determine an individuals risk.

Some people inherit mutations in the germ line allowing for the mutations to be passed on from their parents and to their children. There are two classes of cellular genes: oncogenes and tumor suppressor genes. Often multiple genetic mutations in a single individual are responsible for the development of hereditary cancers.

Advanced Genomic testing is designed to help identify the DNA alterations that may be driving the growth of a specific cancer unique to you. DNA testing provides information to the physician for possible early detection and/or to design and identify treatments specifically designed to target those mutations.

Genetic counseling and testing may be recommended for people who have had certain cancers or certain patterns of cancer in their family.

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.
  • Ethnicity (for example Jewish ancestry is linked to ovarian and breast cancers).
  • 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.
KNOWLEDGE Is Power. Learn about YOUR Risk of Developing Cancer.

  • Assess your general state of health
  • Check if you have an infection
  • See how well certain organs, such as the liver and kidneys, are working
  • Screen for certain genetic condition
