Some of the cancers for which we perform genetic tests include:

  • Breast and ovarian cancer
  • Colorectal cancer
  • Hereditary diffuse gastric cancer
  • Endocrine cancer
  • Sarcoma
  • Adrenal cancer
  • Early-age (under 50) brain cancer
  • Medullary thyroid cancer
  • Paraganglioma or pheochromocytoma
