Hereditary Cancer Syndrome Panels

Asia Genomics offers a range of Hereditary Cancer Syndrome tests: from specific Single Gene tests for individual syndromes, to Multigene Panel tests for a few syndromes, to the Comprehensive Panel test for many syndromes.

Comprehensive Multigene Panel for common Hereditary Cancer Syndromes

The comprehensive multigene panel for hereditary cancer syndrome usually focuses on a panel of about 30 cancer susceptibility genes or more that are associated with many hereditary cancer syndromes. The comprehensiveness of the panel depends on the number of genes in the panel and consequently the number of cancer syndromes it covers.

Individuals who are suitable candidates for such a comprehensive test would have personal and/or family histories similar to features stated above. In addition, the individual and his/her family members could have cancers that are suspicious for more than one hereditary cancer syndromes, and undergone previous genetic testing that returned a negative result.

The Comprehensive Multigene Panel is a blood test ordered by your physician. Your DNA is extracted from the blood and analyzed. The test takes approximately four weeks to complete, and the results will be sent to your physician, who will explain the test results to you.

We will need two tubes of blood (about 4ml each) and a signed consent form from you to send to the laboratory. We recommend genetic counseling before genetic tests are ordered to discuss the implications of the testing and potential results.

Specific Hereditary Cancer Syndrome Single Gene and Multigene Panel Tests

Individuals who have a personal or family history that is suggestive of an identifiable inherited cancer syndrome can opt for tests that look for mutations in a narrower set of specific genes. Please browse through the rest of the Cancer Genetics Familial Cancer Syndrome pages to learn more.
