THIS SERVICE IS REQUIRED OF ALL NEW CLIENTS AND WILL HELP YOU GET STARTED
- My sister was just diagnosed with breast cancer and was told that the family should look into genetic testing. What would I learn if I have genetic testing myself, since I have regular mammograms anyway?
- I was diagnosed with colon cancer at age 40. I have no information about my family history and I have children. Can genetic testing help my doctor with treatment information and my family with management information?
- My brother was recently diagnosed with a clotting condition. My doctor is concerned that this could be genetic and feels that he needs more information before he recommends that I get tested.
- I have several cousins who are mentally retarded. Can genetic testing help to predict whether I am at risk for children with mental retardation?
