Can the tests show my cancer risks?

The ONCOMPASS™ service is not genetic testing, since the gene mutations we detect are usually not congenital or inherited gene defects. Defects of the genes that are related to the formation of tumors of epithelial origin are so-called somatic mutations, that is, mutations acquired during our life in our cells of our body, but not in our germ cells. Therefore, test results do not show your or your relatives’ potential cancer risk. If you are interested in whether you or your relatives have a higher risk of cancer we can recommend you a genetic counselling.
