Comprehensive Hereditary Cancer Panel
Test Information: The Comprehensive Hereditary Cancer Panel uses next-generation sequencing and deletion/duplication analysis to simultaneously analyze selected genes associated with an increased risk for a wide range of cancers. In general, this panel is used when a patient's medical history and family history strongly suggest that there is an underlying genetic etiology of cancer.

Genes included in this panel: ALK, APC, ATM, BMPR1A, BRCA1, BRCA2, BRIP1, CDC73, CDH1, CDKN1C, CDKN2A, CHEK2, EPCAM, FH, FLCN, GPC3, MAX, MEN1, MET, MLH1, MSH2, MSH6, MUTYH, NBN, NF1, NF2, PALB2, PHOX2B, PMS1, PMS2, PRKAR1A, PTCH1, PTEN, RAD51C, RAD51D, RET, SDHAF2, SDHB, SDHC, SDHD, SMAD4, STK11, SUFU, TMEM127, TP53, VHL, WT1
Test Details
Test Code: 9130
Special Notes: The panel includes exon by exon sequencing, indels and gross copy number analyses of 47 cancer-related genes.
Certain exons with no known gross deletion/duplication mutations may not be covered by deletion/duplication analysis.

BRCA1 and BRCA2 gene sequencing and deletion/duplication analysis are performed via next generation sequencing by Counsyl.
