Hereditary Breast/Ovarian Cancer Panel
Test Information: The Hereditary Breast/Ovarian Cancer Panel uses next-generation sequencing and deletion/duplication analysis to simultaneously analyze selected genes associated with an increased risk for breast and ovarian cancers. Approximately 5 to 10% of breast cancers and 10 to 15% of ovarian cancers are believed to be hereditary. In general, this test is used when a patient's medical history and family history findings strongly suggest that there is an underlying genetic etiology of breast/ovarian cancer.

Genes included in this panel: ATM, BRCA1, BRCA2, BRIP1, CDH1, CHEK2, EPCAM, MLH1, MSH2, MSH6, MUTYH, NBN, PALB2, PMS1, PMS2, PTEN, RAD51C, RAD51D, STK11, TP53
Test Details
Test Code: 9170
Special Notes: The panel includes exon by exon sequencing, indels and gross copy number analyses of 20 genes that associated with an increased risk of breast/ovarian cancer.
Certain exons with no known gross deletion/duplication mutations may not be covered by deletion/duplication analysis.
A High Risk Hereditary Breast Cancer Panel (#9155) is also available, which has a shorter turn-around-time and includes 7 genes associated with breast cancer.

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