"Prevalence of Hereditary Cancer and Benefits of Multi-Gene Panel Testing"

Hereditary cancers account for only about 5 percent of all malignancies. Nevertheless, it is very important to recognize these individuals and their family members because, unlike patients with sporadic cancers, they require long-term specific clinical care to permit early detection and/or risk reduction measures.

This application note discusses the prevalence and causative mutations of several hereditary cancer syndromes, as well as the benefits of next-generation sequencing for hereditary cancer as compared to single-gene testing.
