Oncogenetics

Oncogenetics is the field of medicine that works on the identification and analysis of gene mutations, either in healthy or already diagnosed patients. Our DNA holds an infinity of codes and coordinates the development of our body. But it can suffer alterations in its sequence or structure that lead to the appearance of tumors far beyond the hereditary components.

Understanding how the activation of oncogenes happens can not only make a difference in early diagnosis, but can also be a determining factor in the choice of the best treatment.

Grupo Oncoclínicas works with the most advanced techniques in oncogenetics. We have Precision Medicine, a state-of-the-art laboratory in molecular biology that offers, among other services, DNA sequencing and molecular tests. This allows us, when necessary, to have an in-depth knowledge of the oncological history of each patient and their family, such as tumor locations and cell types, which makes the treatment more assertive and personalized.

Our oncogenetics specialists always work together with multidisciplinary teams, in order to offer a broad, integral service, totally focused on the life story of each patient.

When is it important to seek this specialty?

  • If there is an incidence of many cases of benign and/or malignant tumors in the family;
  • If the same person has had two or more different types of cancer;
  • If a tumor has a more aggressive behavior than expected;
