Hereditary Colon Cancer
Next Generation Sequencing Panel
Hereditary colon cancer screening can help identify presymptomatic or asymptomatic individuals within a family and allow clinicians to utilize early screening and monitoring options that optimize potential for early detection.
This panel uses next generation sequencing (NGS), array comparative genomic hybridization (aCGH), and other technologies to evaluate for germline mutations in 17 genes known to be associated with an increased risk for colon cancer development.
