Ovarian Cancer Screening

This disease affects many women around the world and is caused when the cells in the ovary mutate and divide abnormally. The resultant multiplication of uncontrolled cell growth forms a tumor. Ovaries are female reproductive organs that develop the egg. It has been noticed that cancer usually starts at the end of the fallopian tubes progressing to the ovaries.

  • Heaviness in the lower abdomen or pelvis
  • Bloated feeling
  • Loss of appetite
  • Change in the bowel or urine habits
  • Vaginal Bleeding (during menstrual period or after menopause)
  • Metastatic cancer spreads to other vital organs of the body
Genetic Changes
  • Gene TP53 is known to provide the code for producing a tumor suppressor protein.
  • When the gene TP53 mutates it no longer is able to produce the tumor suppressor protein which progresses into cancer.
  • However, there are other genes such as MLH1 & MLH2 mutation which account for not only lung cancer but also play a role in thedevelopment of ovarian cancer.
  • MLH1 & MLH2 are known to account for 10-15% of the ovarian cancers.
  • Alongside BRCA1 & BRCA2 genes are known to have a role in 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
