Clinical summary


Genetic diseases are diseases in which inherited genes predispose to increased risk. The genetic disorders associated with cancer often result from an alteration or mutation in a single gene. The diseases range from rare dominant cancer family syndrome to familial tendencies in which low-penetrance genes may interact with other genes or environmental factors to induce cancer. Research may involve clinical, epidemiologic, and laboratory studies of persons, families, and populations at high risk of these disorders. [from NCI]

Conditions tested

Target population


Patients with a suspected genetic etiology when: the patient exhibits a phenotype with significant genetic heterogeneity, or that is suggestive of multiple conditions; the patient exhibits symptoms with an unclear or atypical phenotype; no or multiple targeted testing options are available for the suspected disease, or there are a large number of candidate genes to evaluate; targeted testing has failed to identify a diagnosis
