MAJOR ETIOLOGIES OF CANCER

The development of cancer in individuals results from the interaction of three factors:

– Genetics (genes)

– Lifestyle (diet, exercise, etc.)

– Environment (air and water quality, stress in life)

  • The GenCare Premium genetic cancer screening test supports the analysis of cancer-related genetic components.

Why is screening for cancer and hereditary chronic diseases essential?

  • If you carry a genetic mutation, your risk of cancer and hereditary chronic diseases increases by 10–40 times.
  • Early diagnosis of a hereditary cancer risk enables active disease prevention and minimizes the risk of developing the disease.
  • Early detection improves the effectiveness of cancer treatment, improving five-year survival rates to 99 percent.
  • Screening and determining the etiology of hereditary cancers and diseases in the family.
  • Avoid unnecessary interventions with non-carriers of the genetic mutation in the family.

What do you get from the test package?

Analysis of 177 genes and comprehensive screening for 69 hereditary cancers and diseases.

Detects mutations in family-inherited genes that increase the risk of common types of cancer. The test results help you evaluate the probability that you will have certain cancers for yourself and your family.

Guaranteed quality in every result.

Next-generation sequencing technology (Illumina) from the United States was developed by Vietnam’s leading medical advisors and a team of professionals. In only 14 days, a high-quality lab that complies with ISO standards will provide you with more than 99-percent-correct test results.

Genetic counseling from geneticists.

The team of experts and geneticists at Gene Solutions are always available to accompany you before and after each test and provide recommendations based on the results.

Simple to do and cost-effective

The USA standard DNA sampling kit, which allows you to collect samples at home in less than a minute, is painless and incredibly convenient.

Modify the treatment plan.

The results assist in tracking cancer/chronic disease progression and planning effective interventions. In addition, it is possible to improve the efficacy of treatment by choosing an appropriate regimen.

Free testing for family members.

If the initial test identifies a mutation, three family members will receive free testing. Take the initiative to prevent and protect your family’s health.

ĐỐI TƯỢNG THỰC HIỆN

For hereditary cancer

PERSONAL HISTORY

  • You or a loved one* has a rare form of cancer (for example, ovarian cancer, pancreatic cancer, male breast cancer, metastatic prostate cancer, triple-negative breast cancer, medullary thyroid).
  • You or a loved one has been diagnosed with cancer earlier than usual (For example, colorectal cancer, endometrial cancer, or breast cancer diagnosed before age 50).
  • You or a loved one has numerous types of cancer simultaneously, and cancer may present in two different organs (for example, bilateral breast cancer or kidney cancer).
  • A colonoscopy revealed more than ten colorectal polyps.
  • Being of a race or ethnicity with a hereditary predisposition for cancer (Example: Ashkenazi Jew).

FAMILY HISTORY

  • First-degree relatives (parent, sibling, or child) with cancer of the same type (Example: mother, daughter, and sister with breast cancer, etc.).
  • Relatives on the same side (mother or father) have the same cancer or related cancers (for example, breast, ovarian, pancreatic, prostate or colorectal cancer, endometrial cancer, uterus, stomach, ovaries, pancreas).
  • A family member has a genetic mutation that increases the risk of cancer.

CONCERNED ABOUT THE POSSIBILITY OF HEREDITARY CANCER INHERITANCE

  • Relatives include siblings, children, father, mother, uncle, aunt, grandfather, and grandmother.
