Cancer is a genetic disease. Each cancer is unique and can vary at the molecular level. At PHIX, we offer genomic diagnostics that can reveal these variations in a fast, accurate and accessible way and help identify personalized treatment options based on a tumor’s unique genomic profile. Relevant cancer types include solid tumors, sarcomas, and hematologic malignancies.
Cancer occurs due to environmental and genetic factors. Breast cancer, which ranks at the top of all female cancers, affects 1 in 8 women within their lifetime and hereditary cancers account for 5-10% of all cancers. A significant percentage of cancer patients have inherited mutations in their genome that predispose them to the disease. Cancer patients, regardless of their family history, may benefit from a molecular analysis of their tumor. Everyone should consider a genomic diagnostic test for cancer as it gives you knowledge to appropriately address your health and your future. PHIX Genomics can provide you with fast and accurate diagnostic results, but we also help you understand any implications of the results through consultation with our Genetic Counselors.
