Genetic and Genomic Testing
Depending on the type of cancer, you may be a candidate for hereditary genetic testing to determine your level of risk. Some of the genetic testing we offer includes: BRCA1, BRCA 2, BART (breast cancer), Lynch Syndrome/HNPCC (colon cancer), Melaris/p16 gene (melanoma), and others.
Molecular Profiling/Genomic Testing
This comprehensive tumor analysis is available to help determine an appropriate therapy plan, which is specific to each patient. By sending a piece of your tumor, or preserved tissue, Cascade Surgical Oncology can select a variety of genetic testing to see what “genes” are being expressed or possibly mutated in your specific cancer. Gene profiles may indicate what therapies will work best for an individual. Some of the molecular or genetic testing are Oncotype DX, MammaPrint, EGFR, KRAS, BRAF, and others.
