Understand Your Cancer Risk with Our Genetic Testing Panels

St. Jude Labs’ BRCA Testing Panel looks for variants in BRCA1 & BRCA2 genes that cause breast, ovarian, prostate, and pancreatic cancers. In contrast, the Oncology Multigene Panel is a curated test that looks for variants in 36 genes associated with an increased risk of 17 types of cancer, syndromes, and tumors. Each patient’s results will include a cancer risk assessment that will provide you with actionable information to manage patient care.

Who Should Be Tested?

There are several factors that increase an individual's risk of carrying genetic mutations:
  • Individuals with personal or family history of a genetic condition
  • Individuals previously detected with cancer
  • Multiple relatives with the same type of cancer
  • A relative diagnosed with multiple primary cancers
  • Women diagnosed with non-cancer breast conditions
  • Having a first-degree female relative (mother, sister, or daughter) with breast cancer
  • First-degree male relatives (father, brother, or son) diagnosed with breast or prostate cancer
  • Jewish people of Ashkenazi (Eastern Europe) origin

Our Core Competencies

There are several factors that increase an individual's risk of carrying genetic mutations:
  • BRCA & cancer screening results within 4 days.
  • Genetic counsellors available.
  • Quick appointments with ordering physicians.
  • Flexible reporting options: email, fax, EMR uploads.
  • Courier service to pick up specimens.
  • Patient help desk hotline.

Our genetic testing analyzes an individual's DNA to identify genetic conditions or risk factors for certain diseases. We use saliva/buccal swabs to analyze genetic disorders.

Genetic testing helps understand your genetic makeup and identify any potential health risks. This helps in making informed decisions about health and taking steps to manage or prevent certain conditions.

Our genetic tests are performed using a simple saliva/buccal swab sample. The sample is collected at one of our locations. The sample is then sent to our laboratory for analysis.

We offer genetic testing for various cancer types, including prostate, gastric, endometrial, pancreatic, breast, ovarian, and colon cancer. However, it is essential to note that genetic testing is not a comprehensive screening for all types of cancer. It focuses on specific genetic mutations that are known to increase cancer risk.
