Empowering patients to make the right decision related to their diagnosis and treatment.
Cancer Genetic Counselling & testing is important to help you and your loved ones understand the risks of inherited cancers that tend to run in families. This works by assessing and evaluating your medical history, as well as your family’s medical history. This is followed by detailed screening and testing. If our experts feel that there is any need for such tests, they will guide you and help you make an informed decision related to whether you should opt for any such test or not.
A positive result indicates that cancerous gene mutations are present and you have higher chances of acquiring certain cancers. Positive tests do not necessarily mean that you will acquire cancer, however, it surely means that you fall in the risk category.
If you test negative, it means that there is no gene mutation that may have resulted in cancer in the long run. It is possible that there are other mutations that you might not be tested for. Even a result that is completely negative, does not mean that you are at zero risks of developing cancer.
The test result is said to be inconclusive if there is not much information available related to your risks of developing specific cancer. Though you can start making healthy lifestyle changes, yet not being sure about your treatment can make you anxious. Our team will help you in the best possible way to cope up with the situation and also suggest any further investigations that might help you.
This happens when a person has an unusual variant of a gene but it is not clear if the mutation is cancerous. In some cases, this might be completely normal, in others, it may call for the need for further investigation.
