    PRECISO BRCA1 & 2 HEREDITARY (GERMLINE) PANEL is a genetic test that detects mutations in the BRCA1 and BRCA2 genes. These genes play a crucial role in suppressing tumour growth and preventing the development of breast and ovarian cancers. Mutations in these genes can increase the risk of developing these cancers significantly. This test is recommended for individuals with a family history of breast or ovarian cancer or those who have been diagnosed with these cancers before the age of 50.

    Symptoms of Breast Cancer

    • A lump in the breast or underarm that does not go away after your menstrual cycle
    • Swelling or discomfort in the breast
    • Pain in the nipple area
    • Nipple discharge other than breast milk
    • A new onset of nipple inversion
    • Redness or thickening in the breast skin

    Symptoms of Ovarian Cancer

    • A rapid feeling of fullness soon after eating

    • Discomfort in the pelvic area
    • Changes in bowel habits, such as constipation

    Test Procedure

    The PRECISO BRCA1 & 2 HEREDITARY (GERMLINE) PANEL involves a simple blood test. A laboratory technician will draw a small sample of blood from a vein in your arm. No special preparation is required for this test.

    At the lab, the DNA extracted from the blood sample is analysed to look for mutations in the BRCA1 and BRCA2 genes. This test uses the ONCOMINE BRCA1 AND BRCA2 ASSAY (GERMLINE) technology, which is highly accurate and reliable. The sample will be sent to a specialized laboratory, and the results will be available within 22 days.

    If an individual tests positive for the mutations in the BRCA1 or BRCA2 genes, there are several options available. These may include increased surveillance, preventive measures such as prophylactic surgery, or targeted therapies that may reduce cancer risk. A positive test result can also provide important information for family members who may also be at increased risk of developing cancer.

    The PRECISO BRCA1 & 2 HEREDITARY (GERMLINE) PANEL price is usually on the higher side.
