What is the Precision Health Genetic Screen?

The Precision Health Genetic Screen is a blood test that screens for well-known genetic conditions. People with one of these conditions should follow special medical guidelines.

The Precision Health Genetic Screening test only screens for DNA changes known to cause these genetic conditions:

  • Inherited Breast & Ovarian Cancer Syndrome | 2 GENES
  • Lynch Syndrome Hereditary Colon & Uterine Cancers | 5 GENES
  • Familial Hypercholesterolemia Inherited High Cholesterol | 4 GENES

Having one of these conditions greatly increases the chance that a person will develop a serious disease such as heart disease or certain cancers in their lifetime. Learning about the risk allows doctors and patients to follow special medical guidelines to address these risks.
