cancer are not hereditary.
Colorectal cancer is the 3rd most commonly diagnosed cancer in the US, yet 1 in 3 adults are not receiving the appropriate colorectal cancer screening for their age. In addition, rates of colorectal cancer among 20-49-year olds is steadily increasing. Identifying patients who are most at risk for colorectal cancer can lead to enhanced screening protocols and better outcomes.
Most individuals diagnosed with colorectal cancer do not have a significant family history of the disease. GeneType for Colorectal Cancer evaluates the genomic risk of developing colorectal cancer for men and women aged 30 years or older who do not have a known pathogenic gene variant.
