“I want to know all” genetic predisposition tests

Do you check weather forecasts to choose a good time to have holidays? Do you check the calorific value of your meals to control your weight? You usually want to know all you can. This is how you can plan your actions and avoid unnecessary problems.

Take care of your future. Take care of what is most important. Take care of your health. Check your genetic predisposition to cancer. Take informed decisions about preventive care and other actions decreasing the risk of developing cancer.

The development of a cancer is influenced by many factors including lifestyle (e.g. low physical activity, unhealthy diet, alcoholic beverages, smoking, risky sexual behaviours), physical and social environment (e.g. low quality of water, environmental pollution, low quality of air, sun exposure), and genetic factors.

What do you gain by undergoing this test?

  • An analysis of the risk of developing 10 types of cancers: colorectal cancer, pancreas cancer, breast cancer, ovarian cancer, prostate cancer, endometrial cancer, malignant melanoma, kidney cancer, thyroid cancer and stomach cancer.
  • An analysis of over 60 genes increasing the risk of developing the disease.
  • An individual plan of preventive care and early detection of cancer.
  • Credibility and professionalism: unlike other companies operating on the market, we offer blood-based tests and a reliable description of the results by a physician. You do not have to take a sample from your cheek by yourself and you are not left on your own with the results.
  • Security: we know that the data concerning your genetic material are sensitive medical information and this is why we take care of their proper protection. Samples are examined in a laboratory in Warszawa. As a result, we control them at each stage: from collection to disposal after the analysis.

Scope:

  • the genetic test is carried out using the latest methods of DNA analysis (Next Generation Sequencing, NGS), which guarantees high accuracy and reliability,
  • the clinical data, data related to family history and results of the tests are assessed by a team of specialists,
  • an internist consultation,
  • an individual preventive care plan based on the assessment of the risk of developing cancer.

The genetic predisposition test is recommended particularly to those who:

  • have a family history of colorectal cancer, pancreas cancer, breast cancer, ovarian cancer, prostate cancer, endometrial cancer, malignant melanoma, kidney cancer, thyroid cancer or stomach cancer,
  • have a family history of confirmed genetic mutations of any of the genes increasing the risk of developing cancer,
  • want to detect their genetic predispositions in order to undertake early preventive care.

Undergo an “I want to know all” genetic predisposition test. See if you are a carrier of a mutation increasing the risk of developing cancer.

Performance

The test takes 2 visits to the Medicover Centre to complete.

  • Before your visit to the Medicover Centre, fill in the Patient Questionnaire, i.e. a detailed questionnaire concerning your family history of cancer. You will receive the questionnaire by e-mail along with the purchase confirmation. Bring the questionnaire with you to your first visit at the Medicover Centre.
  • During your first visit, you will have your blood collected. Then, the results of the blood test and the questionnaire will be assessed by a specialist in genetic diagnostics, whose opinion and recommendations will be sent to the Medicover Centre.
  • During your second visit to the Medicover Centre, you will see a general practitioner who will discuss with you the results of the test and the resulting recommendations. The physician will also discuss with you your individual plan of preventive care and early detection of cancer, taking into account your life plans.

The period of validity of the test: 3 months from the date indicated in the order confirmation.

You can have the test performed at Jerozolimskie Medicover Centre.

Cancer is the second most frequent cause of death in Poland. Cancer affects approx. 157,000 Poles per year, out of which nearly 95,000 die. The development of a cancer is influenced by many factors including lifestyle (e.g. low level of physical activity, unhealthy diet, alcoholic beverages, smoking, risky sexual behaviours), physical and social environment (e.g. low quality of water, environmental pollution, low quality of air, sun exposure), and genetic factors. A lot of genes are related to the risk of developing cancer. Some of those genes have been determined by scientists. As a result, by performing genetic tests, you can detect mutations that are related to an increased risk of developing cancer. If you know about your genetic predispositions, you can take informed decisions about preventive care and other actions decreasing the risk of developing the disease.
