Why testing your genes matters
Every person has his or her own unique set of genes. Genetic testing can show if you have or don’t have mutations, or changes, in your genes. Some gene mutations can cause certain types of cancer or other health problems. Changes in your genes may even impact how well certain medicines may work for you.
The Kailos test can show how likely or unlikely you are for getting certain kinds of health problems, like cancer. When you know your risk, you can take control. You can take steps right away that may help lower your risk for developing cancer. For example, you may decide to get a mammogram or colonoscopy more often.
The Kailos test can also help you and your doctor understand what medicines may not work well for you.
