Get screened based on your personal pancreatic cancer risk

Pancreatic cancer is often detected late because we don’t have routine screening for all adults. But, if you are identified as at-increased risk, screening options exist.

Understand your risk of developing pancreatic cancer.

Have a more informed discussion with your doctor about the options that exist for you.

Will insurance cover this test?

No. At this time geneType is a self-pay test. However, you may use FSA/HSA to pay for the test.

Can I order this test if I am a known carrier for a hereditary cancer syndrome (ie. BRCA1 or BRCA2)?

This test is not applicable to adults who have personal history of pancreatic cancer or who have already been shown to have a cancer mutation, for example in the BRCA1 or BRCA2 gene, or a diagnosis of a genetic syndrome that may be associated with an elevated risk of pancreatic cancer. 

Does this test incorporate all potential risk factors for pancreatic cancer?

Cancer is a multifactorial disease and there are many different risk factors. Of these, geneType integrates the most predictive risk factors into the model. Future models may include additional risk factors as the scientific community’s understanding of pancreatic cancer continues to evolve.
