Genetic insights help personalize
cancer risk and management

 

Hereditary cancer genetic testing informs on personalized cancer risk and supports preventive care strategies throughout a woman’s health journey. Genetic test results can empower you and your patients with critical health information to modify, guide, and optimize medical management.

 

Healthcare providers recognize the importance of genetics in helping patients make decisions about their health

 

In our latest webcast, medical experts in women’s health weigh in on why genetic testing matters to patients and how knowing their risk can help them take charge of their future.

“About 24% of women who go to a gynecologist office are eligible for cancer susceptibility gene testing. We need to be aware of these patients coming into our office because medical management changes according to their risk.

– Elizabeth Etkin-Kramer, M.D., FACOG, Associate Professor in OB/GYN at FIU Herbert Wertheim College of Medicine

“As more options are available, knowing hereditary risk predisposition early on can help patients with better family planning.”

– Matthew Lederman, Reproductive Endocrinologist and Infertility Specialist at RMA of New York

“One of the most important things you can do for your patients is to take their family history to see if they are candidates for hereditary cancer risk testing.”

– Jill Chisholm, APNG President and Founder of GeneScreen and Chief Medical Officer of Synergenomics
