Test Overview

Learn about your inherited risk.

At Elite Medicine we can analyse your genetic variants for your hereditary cancer risks. Early insights into one’s risk of cancer can inform of appropriate early screening opportunities.

Often people inherit gene faults, some of which can increase the risk of developing certain types of cancer. Some gene faults can increase the risk of more than one type of cancer.

If a close member of your family has had one or more of the types of cancer listed here, you may benefit from knowing more about your risk for cancer of the bowel; breast; kidney; skin; ovaries; pancreas; prostate; retina (eye); thyroid; and/or uterus (womb).

“The whole process of the testing had been remarkably easy – and I found the knowledge I gained both before the test and after it, truly fascinating. The doctors take huge care to ensure they have a full history and discuss any elements of your health that you find worrisome”
