Predictive Genetics

There are 2 types of Predictive genetic testing : pre-symptomatic (eventual development of symptoms is certain when the gene mutation is present, e.g., Huntington disease) and pre-dispositional (eventual development of symptoms is likely but not certain when the gene mutation is present, e.g., breast cancer). These types of testing are used to detect gene mutations associated with disorders that appear after birth, often later in life. These tests can be helpful to people who have a family member with a genetic disorder, but who have no features of the disorder themselves at the time of testing. The results of predictive testing can provide information about a person’s risk of developing a specific disorder and help with making decisions about medical care.
