Hereditary Cancer

ARUP performs testing for several hereditary cancer syndromes that predispose at-risk individuals to early onset tumors and malignancies. Identifying individuals who have inherited a familial mutation may allow for early targeted or specialized screening procedures. Early identification of precancerous lesions may prevent death and other serious health problems from occurring.

ARUP has developed testing for more than 40 hereditary cancer syndromes. Some of the tests offered are for a single specific syndrome, while other tests involve multigene sequencing and deletion/duplication panels for individuals with a complex personal or family history where it is unclear which single gene should be tested. When more than one single gene could be causative for a familial cancer syndrome, it is often more cost effective to order a multigene panel.
