Cancer Genetics Risk Assessment

 After completion of the mapping of the human genome in 2003, our medical knowledge vastly increased about the causes of cancers. We know that all cancers have an error in the DNA of the cancer cell that leads to unregulated growth and eventually a cancer.  We now have the ability to see if this error is something that is inherited and leads to a predisposition to cancer.  That is what we do with cancer genetics risk assessment.  By testing the person’s blood or saliva, we can determine if there is a hereditary component to the cancer.  We can do this for people with a history of certain cancers and for people with an extensive family history of cancer. 

If interested in making an appointment, or for further information, please contact Dr. Amelia Jeyapalan’s office at 910-295-0264.
