Prostate Cancer Screening

Prostate cancer develops in middle age or later, the cells in the prostate become abnormal and multiply exponentially to form atumor. This disease is most common in older men and can be treated if diagnosed early. If left undiagnosed it can get progressive and spread across the body.

Clinical Symptoms
  • Blood in urine or semen
  • Pain during ejaculation
  • Stop in the flow of urine
  • Cancer progression to vital organs (Heart, Liver, Lungs, Pelvis or lower back etc.)
Genetic Changes
  • It is believed that several genes are responsible for the progression of prostate cancer.
  • In particular, HOXB13 gene is a tumor suppressor gene which provides the instructional code to produce a protein to control the cell growth and division
  • When the HOXB13 gene mutates it no longer produces the protein for tumor suppression. BRCA1 & BRCA2 which are the regulatory genes in breast cancer are also known to work in tandem with the HOXB13 gene.
Other Factors for Cancer Progression Include
  • High fat diet
  • Excess meat and diet
  • Sedentary lifestyle
  • Excessive alcohol
  • Obesity
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 a particular disease
  • It doesn’t say that you have the disease
  • Regardless of the mutation only a few people develop the disease
  • Out of 100 people who take genetic screen, there is a significant chance that only 25 might develop cancer
