Hereditary Cancer Panels


Did you know as much as 10% of cancers are inherited?

When people review their family’s medical history, they may find a number of relatives who have had various types of cancer. This may be due to their relatives having certain risk factors in common, such as smoking, or it may be due to an inherited gene mutation that can increase their risk for developing cancer.1

An inherited mutation is one that is passed down from either your mother or father. Sometimes inherited mutations can cause a person to have an increased risk for certain types of cancer. In fact, five to ten percent of all cancers result directly from inherited mutations.1

Focused Testing for Hereditary Cancer Syndromes

VistaSeq® is a portfolio of multi-gene tests that detects inherited mutations in genes that have been associated with an increased risk of developing hereditary cancers.

Having this information can allow your physician to provide the appropriate additional screening and/or prevention options that could help reduce your risk.
