Turn Around Time

21-24 Business Days Turnaround times are estimates


The myDNA Hereditary Cancer panel examines genes linked to various cancers such as breast and ovarian cancer, colorectal cancer, and Lynch Syndrome. Approximately 10% of cancers have a hereditary aspect, leading to a higher likelihood of multiple family members experiencing similar types of cancers (Garutti et al., 2023). Proactive screening can support early intervention and may encourage family members to screen for the same gene variants (Garutti et al., 2023).

Through a simple and non-invasive buccal swab, this report will address 49 genes associated with the predisposition to hereditary cancers. It will also detect large deletions and duplication (CNVs) using the Atlas-CNV method (Chiang et al., 2019).
