Genetic Testing for Colorectal Cancer

Genetic testing can tell if you have genetic changes (mutations) that increase the risk of certain cancers, such as breast, ovarian and colon cancer.

Several genes are associated with colorectal cancer risk.

ColonCancerCheck is focused on average and increased risk individuals and, at this time, does not address those at high risk for colorectal cancer due to genetic conditions.

Talk with your primary care provider to see if you would benefit from genetic assessment.
