Organ and System Specific Panels

PsiGenex allows for a more targeted approach by offering nine hereditary cancer panels that are specific to each cancer type. These panels cover all of the high penetrance genes as well as other medium risk genes that have well-established evidence of association with common cancer syndromes.

Inherited Cancer Indications:

  • Early ages of onset (under 50’s)
  • Multiple generations with cancer
  • Multiple or bilateral cancers
  • Clustering of certain cancers (e.g. breast and ovarian)

  • Later ages of onset (60’s-70’s)
  • Little or no family history of cancer
  • Single or unilateral cancers

Early Detection is Key to Prevent or Mitigate Hereditary Cancers

Nearly half of cancers that are caused by hereditary mutations can be prevented.

Testing is the First Step

Identifying patients with inherited cancer susceptibility syndromes though genetic testing leads to changes in medical management with standard of care recommendations that positively impact morbidity and mortality.
