Understand your risk factors for cancer using the power of genetics.

Did you know that hereditary cancers account for 5% to 10% of all cancers? Genetic mutations may increase your risk in developing associated cancers. The CGX test is the first comprehensive cancer risk assessment, which allows keen insight into your genetic makeup and propensity towards developing a hereditary cancer.

Cancer Genetic Screening

Who is it for?

CGx testing can be considered for anyone who has one or more of the following risk factors:


A personal history of cancer


 Strong family history (multiple close family members- mother, father, sister, brother, grandparents, aunts and uncles)


Personal experience with more than one type of cancer or multiple cancers occurring in one family member


Family history of cancers occurring at younger-than-usual ages


Currently experiencing presenting symptoms


Multiple concurrent medical problems such as diabetes, obesity, heart disease, chronic inflammation, or colon polyps

While many inherited genetic variants are beneficial or neutral, others are harmful and believed to contribute to 5-10% of all cancers.

Cancer Genetic Screening For Seniors

Breast and Ovarian Cancer

BRCA, breast and ovarian cancer genes, come in pairs (BRCA1 and BRCA2). Only one gene in the pair needs to have a mutation to put a patient at risk for cancer. For women, a BRCA mutation increases the risk for breast and ovarian cancers. For men, the overall risk for these cancers is lower than women, although the risk for prostate and skin cancers is increased.

Lynch Syndrome

Inherited mutations in the genes of MLH1, MSH2, MSH6, PMS2 and EPCAM give an increased lifetime risk of certain cancers. This genetic syndrome, known as Lynch syndrome and also called hereditary non-polyposis colorectal cancer (HNPCC), is associated with a higher risk of certain types of cancer.
