Our genetic testing for cancer is made up of 3 simple steps

step 1 icon

Call us to book your genetic consultation with one of our registered genetic counsellors. This can be over the phone or face-to face at a location near you.

step 2 icon

If you would like to go ahead with testing, we will arrange a blood test appointment. Our clinical scientists will test your sample for the relevant genes.

step 3 icon

Your genetic counsellor will telephone you with your results to explain any implications and how they will affect you and your family.

Our genetic testing service is world class

Most genetic testing services just charge you for testing a blood sample. Our genetic counsellors are fully qualified medical professionals, meaning that they know whether you need testing, and can offer you the support you need throughout the process.

Our Genetic Counsellors will give you proper guidance

Your results will be discussed with you in great detail, to ensure that you understand what our lab tests found. We can refer you to a specialist if needed.

Our pricing is fair and manageable.

You don't pay for testing upfront because you might not need it. Our counsellors will tell you if you are at risk and if testing is appropriate. The upfront cost of £150 will be refunded against the cost of the testing if it is needed.

What do you get?

  • A phone call to discuss your situation and to book a consultation at a local clinic or over the phone

  • An initial consultation with one of our Genetic Counsellors, who will determine whether genetic testing would be beneficial for you

  • An appointment where your blood sample will be taken for testing

  • A post-test results consultation with your Genetic Counsellor

  • A full, comprehensive report and personal letter written by your genetic counsellor

How does it work?

Your blood sample will be tested using state of the art Next Generation Sequencing which examines your genetic code in detail, looking for changes in the code as well as large missing or extra parts of the genes.

What will the test show?

There are 3 possible results that your Genetic Counsellor will discuss with you:

  1. A mutation is found that increases your cancer risk
  2. No mutation is found
  3. An unrecognised genetic variation is found

Testing for cancer

There are approximately 25,000 genes in every cell in our body, and they determine how our body functions, develops and is maintained. Genes come in pairs and each gene has a code, which is like a long sentence with thousands of letters. Changes in this code are called mutations, and some mutations stop the gene working properly and can increase the risk of certain types of cancer. Some of these mutations can be inherited from your parents, and they can be detected from a simple blood test.

Do I need testing for cancer?

Families with an increased genetic cancer risk often show one of the following clues:

  • Several relatives with the same type of cancer
  • Relatives diagnosed at a young age
  • Several affected generations
  • Individuals who have been diagnosed with multiple cancers
