Genetic Testing for Breast Cancer

Genetic Testing for Breast Cancer

By using a molecular diagnostic test to assess whether a breast tumour will respond to chemotherapy, we're hoping to more precisely identify which patients can be adequately treated with hormonal therapy alone and which patients will truly benefit if chemotherapy is added to the treatment.

Our staff works hard to make the DNA Identity Testing Center your choice of provider for all DNA testing services. We ensure superior quality, service and convenience to our clients. In our commitment to providing convenience, please know that we provide a free DNASwabTM Home DNA Collection Kit for use in all types of private DNA tests.

Positive Test Results
Positive Test Results
If the test results come back positive, it means that you have a mutation in one of the breast cancer genes, BRCA1 or BRCA2. Identification of a BRCA mutation means you're at much higher risk of developing breast or ovarian cancer compared with someone at average risk of developing these cancers.
Negative Test Results
Negative Test Results
A BRCA test result is a true negative only if it finds that you don't carry a specific BRCA mutation already identified in a relative of yours. In that limited circumstance, "negative" means your risk of breast and ovarian cancer is the same as that of the general population.
Genetic Determinism
Genetic determinism is the belief that behavioural and personality characteristics, such as intelligence or criminal behaviour, are mostly a function of genes. Genetic determinism implies a fatalistic attitude toward health and disease. It can be used to justify bigotry and to perpetuate racial or ethnic inequalities. A genetic underclass could be created.
