Cancer Genetics

Cancer is a genetic disease & is caused by certain changes to genes that control the way our cells function, especially how they grow and divide. These changes include mutations in the DNA that makes up our genes. Some types of cancer run in certain families, but most cancers are not clearly linked to the genes we inherit from our parents. Gene changes that start in a single cell over the course of a person's life cause most cancers. Some people are genetically predisposed to developing certain types of cancer. These people have a higher risk of developing the disease than those in the general public. Genetic testing is now available for some hereditary cancers. Genetic testing involves a simple blood test and may be used to obtain a more precise estimate of your cancer risk. In some cases, genetic testing can be done on stored tissue samples from deceased relatives.
