What about future testing?
Research scientists are constantly using DNA to unlock new mysteries about how our genes affect our health and to advance medical breakthroughs. In fact, much of this exciting work is happening right here at ChristianaCare in the Helen F. Graham Cancer Center & Research Institute’s Gene Editing Institute. Your test will look at the genes we know about at the time of your testing and the role those genes play in certain diseases. We encourage you to check in with your genetic counselor once a year — maybe around the time of your annual mammogram or yearly physical — to see if new tests, screening recommendations or treatments have become available that are recommended for you.
Talk with a qualified genetic counselor today about whether genetic testing is right for you. Call 302-623-4593, option 1, or toll-free at 1-800-811-8116.
