Do you have a personal or family history of any of these type of cancers?
The Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) finally announced that they will cover state of the art at-home gene sequencing tests for cancer that have been approved by the FDA. As a direct result of this brand new science, senior mortality rates are projected to drop as much as 43% over the next 5 years. This simple test takes about 2 minutes at home, and detects all types of cancer and pre-cancers with just one simple swab inside the cheek.
Whether you’ve already been diagnosed, or you want to know your risk, health experts can test your DNA to determine your chances of developing cancer. The testing itself determines whether or not they have inherited this broken gene that could cause potentially a higher risk for developing these cancers.
