LumiRISKTM is a multi-cancer test that detects 28 genes commonly associated with increased risk of cancer.
Cancer risk assessment identifies individuals with a higher-than-average risk of developing cancer due to their genes inherited through their family.
LumiRISKTM tests for a panel of 28 genes through a standard blood sample.
Cancer is caused by errors (called mutations) in our genes. Genes control how cell in our body divide and grow.
inherited cancers are cancers that run in the family. Such cancers occur when one gene mutation is passed from one genereation to another.
Many people know of one or serveral relatives with cancer. Most of these are related to age or lifestyle facetors such as smoking.
Genetic testing can assist doctors to estimate your lifetime risk for cancer. These tests are done by drawing a small amount of blood. The test analyses your genes to help:
Genetic testing can help doctors to give you a more accurate assessment. However, having risks for inherited cancer does not mean cancer.
