Did you know that 1 out of every 7-8 cancer patients and survivors carry inherited genetic mutations that are detectable with a simple blood or saliva genetic test?
These are called “pathogenic” mutations as they are associated with an increase in one’s risk of developing cancers. I offer genetic testing to anyone who has a high-risk for carrying a mutation (usually covered by most insurance plans). Considering 13% of all individuals with a cancer history carry a mutation, it’s very reasonable for anyone with a cancer history to consider getting one of these tests if they are interested in knowing whether they might be a mutation carrier. Even if insurance doesn’t authorize the test, we can still can get it done for about $250 (includes genetic counseling). You only need to do this test one time, as you carry these mutations for your entire life.
This test can be shipped to anyone in the U.S. Get your test here
