THE IMPORTANCE OF GENETIC COUNSELING
Genetic tests such as those offered by Ethigen can provide tremendously helpful insights into your risk for cancer. And with only a blood draw needed to get started, they can appear to be much like any other test you may encounter as part of your routine health care. But unlike a test for cholesterol, for example, the decision to be tested and what the test results will mean for your healthcare plan are rarely clear cut. Add to that the complexities associated with whether and how to share your test results with other at-risk members of your family, and it becomes clear that an experienced healthcare provider can play an invaluable role in helping you navigate the entire process. Ethigen believes that the best, most well-trained resource for people considering genetic testing is a Certified Genetic Counselor, and requires their participation with every test we offer.
