GeneType for Colorectal Cancer

A personalised colorectal cancer risk assessment test

About the test

GeneType for Colorectal Cancer is a test that can determine a patient's risk of developing colorectal cancer over a period of time. GeneType for Colorectal Cancer combines patient age, family history and genetic markers to provide a more accurate assessment of colorectal cancer risk.

Clinical risk factors

Colorectal cancer is a multi-factorial disease. Not all risk factors, or their level of causality, are understood. Some patients are at increased risk of colorectal cancer based on clinical factors alone. Proven risk indicators for colorectal cancer include age, poor diet and a family history of colorectal cancer. Knowing your patient’s personal risk leads to better health outcomes.
