How is genetic testing done to diagnose cancer? What is the different genetic testing?
Hello, Genetic testing plays a vital role in determining the risk of developing certain diseases as well as a screening of the diseases like cancer. Genetic testing can provide important information for diagnosing, treating, and preventing illness. Genetic testing helps estimate your chance of developing cancer in your lifetime. Can anyone tell me it is done? What is the different genetic testing?
@xella Hello, Genetic testing involves examining your DNA, the chemical database that carries instructions for your body's functions. Genetic testing can reveal changes (mutations) in your genes that may cause illness or disease. Here are a few types of genetic testing like chromosome studies, DNA studies, and biochemical genetic studies. Tests for cancer susceptibility genes are usually done by DNA studies. Thanks!
