Genes play a significant role in determining your risk for developing melanoma, the most deadly form of skin cancer.
This DNA app analyzes your genes and provides personalized preventive measures you can institute throughout life to minimize your risk of melanoma.
Predicting your genetic risk of melanoma is now possible. Created by healthcare professionals, this DNA analysis app provides a comprehensive genetic assessment for protecting your skin.
This app not only predicts your genetic risk of melanoma but also empowers you with a report focused on prevention so that you can outsmart your genes.
Knowing your genetic risk of melanoma means being able to create a personalized, actionable plan to prevent melanoma or detect it at its earliest stages should it ever occur.
Early detection is incredibly important because when caught early, melanoma is treatable.
Be proactive by using the personalized insights in your genetic report to help protect your future.
This app analyzes your genes and provides you with a confidential, easy-to-read report of your results.
Your report will indicate your genetic risk of developing melanoma and also provides non-technical, personalized information about how you can use this information to protect yourself against melanoma.
This app is compatible with most DNA tests including 23andMe, AncestryDNA, and MyHeritage.
Once your DNA data is stored in your Sequencing.com account, click the app's 'Start' button. You'll receive your results in about 15 minutes.
Skin cancer is the most common cancer in the US. Of skin cancers, melanoma is the most deadly. More people are being diagnosed with melanoma than ever before – making it the fastest growing cancer in the nation.
Melanoma is the result of uncontrolled growth of the cells that produce the pigment melanin, which colors skin, eyes, hair, and moles. This is the type of skin cancer that is most likely to grow quickly and spread. Once it spreads, on average melanoma has more than a 50% chance of causing death.
There are many melanoma risk factors, including fair skin, large numbers of moles, history of severe sunburns, and exposure to ultraviolet (UV) radiation such as from tanning beds. Genes also play an important role in determining your risk of this deadly disease.
Genes give your body instructions that tell your skin cells when to grow, divide, or die. Inherited gene mutations can increase the likelihood of skin cells turning into cancer, meaning that someone with specific mutations may be at much greater risk of developing melanoma than someone with otherwise equal risk factors (such as the amount of sun exposure) who does not have those mutations.
Genes play a significant role in determining your risk for developing melanoma. A personalized plan for protecting the health of your skin may be able to significantly reduce your risk of this disease.
For example, the risk of death from melanoma is only 1% if it is detected early, and the surveillance that enables early detection, such as how often your doctor performs full body skin exams, can now be tailored to your genetic testing results.
This app empowers you with numerous personalized preventive measures you can institute throughout your life to minimize your risk of melanoma ever forming.
Sequencing's new DNA Education Center is your resource for learning about DNA sequencing, personalized medicine, and genetic discoveries. For example, you can learn about the role of your genes in determining your risk of medication side effects.
