Multi-gene panel for cancer predisposition: Genes, Risks, and Recommendations

I understand that not everyone wants to know about their genetic risks for developing diseases, but some people do. Finding out about my gene has helped me make educated decisions about my life-style and health screening options. So, for those interested in knowing which mutations have been identified, here’s a list: Multi-gene Panel for cancer Predisposition.

If you decide to see a genetic counselor, she/he may have more recent information. Science is continuously advancing and there may be new developments already in the works.

 

If you decide to learn more about your genetic makeup due to a cancer diagnosis, and have been found a carrier for one of the above genes, you may be a candidate to participate on Prompt. I am currently a participant. Let’s help scientists and doctors learn more about cancer, so that eventually,  they can create better target treatments for everyone. And who knows, maybe a cure too.
