Breast Cancer Screening

Breast cancer is caused by amutation in the BRCA1 or BRCA2 genes. The disease is more common in women, however, it can equally affect men. The cancer is caused when the cells in the breast become abnormal and multiply to form atumor. Based on the location of the cell mutation they are classified into 2 types: Lobular Cancer & Ductal Cancer.

Clinical Symptoms
  • Lumps or thickening in
  • Change in size of the breasts
  • Skin irritation & Scaliness
  • Nipple discharge
  • Retraction (turning inward)
Genetic Changes
  • BRCA1 & BRCA2 gene are responsible for producing tumor suppressor proteins. The help repair damaged DNA and play a key role in maintaining the cells genetic material.
  • When either of the BRCA1 & 2 genes it leads to Breast cancer
  • Breast Cancer Screening looks for mutated BRCA1 &BRCA2 genes.
  • This mutation is heritable (Both mother & father can transmit this mutation)
  • Offsprings who carry the mutated BRCA gene have 25% chance of developing breast/ovarian cancer
Advantages of Cancer Screening using Genetic Testing
  • Individuals can estimate the chance of developing cancer during their lifetime
  • Risk prediction of a particular disease
  • Forecast can help change lifestyle by implementing preventive measures
  • Cancer risks can be mitigated early by regular cancer screening
  • Genetic counseling before & after can help in future prognosis
Is cancer hereditary, things you must consider?
  • Do you have 3 or more relatives on the same side of the family who have suffered same or related forms of cancer?
  • Do you have 2 or more relatives diagnosed with cancer at an early age?
  • Do you have a recurring history of 2 or more cancers in the family bloodline?
  • If I have a genetic condition, can I lower my risks?
Why Us?
  • We provide comprehensive analysis of all 24 chromosomal disorders
  • Highly trained & qualified technicians
  • We use robust & proven Next generation sequencing (NGS) protocol
  • Quality control for every batch
  • Guaranteed results & lower chances of false positives
Things to Remember
  • Genetic testing helps in making a predictive health forecast
  • Many people suffer from depression, anxiety or guilt after the test. We recommend genetic counseling to prevent such emotional implications
  • The results only describe the risk for cancer
  • It doesnot say that you have cancer
  • Regardless of the mutation, only a few people develop cancer.
  • Out of 100 people who take cancer screen, there is a significant chance that only 25 might develop cancer
