About this Event

Cancer genetic testing options

DNA tests are revolutionizing our medical world and one of the greatest impacts has been in cancer. Potential benefits range from screening for a hereditary predisposition to the informed selection of a personalized therapy. But the public remains largely uninformed about this breakthrough technology. In this talk, geared towards cancer patients, individuals with cancer family history, and treating physicians, we will discuss:

  • What types of cancer related genetic tests are available?
  • What is the difference between your inherited DNA and the tumour DNA?
  • What are the limitations and benefits of cancer genetic tests?
  • What are the extra benefits of combined DNA and RNA testing?
  • What is the one DNA test that every cancer patient should consider?
  • Which cancer medications are linked to personal genetics?

Who this talk is for:

  • Cancer patients and survivors
  • Individuals with a family history of cancer
  • Physicians interested in cancer related genetic tests availability at their clinics
  • Cancer support staff who desire to learn more about cancer DNA testing
  • Influencers with outreach who are interested in partnering for events promotion to facilitate education and awareness to cancer patients , family members, treating physicians
