Dtect Onco is a genetic screening test designed to determine your patient’s risk of developing 32 types of cancer, is one of the most comprehensive genetic predisposition tests. This test screens your DNA for markers that are linked to inherited risk factors for cancers. The markers serve as ‘red flags’ in your DNA and can indicate if you are predisposed to a certain type of cancer. 

This non-invasive screening test helps the patients and doctors determine the level of risk for cancers including breast, ovarian, liver, 

endometrial, pancreas, prostate, skin, stomach and colorectal cancers. With the information from these markers, you can be better prepared to make lifestyle and dietary changes to mitigate your health risks, if necessary.

Understand Your Risk Factors for Cancer
Cancer refers to the uncontrolled division and growth of cells in the human body. The growth, or a tumour, is caused by mutations in a person’s DNA. These mutations can also be passed down from parent to child, or may be prevalent among siblings.

Cancers can develop in any part of the human body but those associated with the breast, ovarian, liver, prostate, colon and lung are more common in Malaysia.

Dtect Onco is relevant for individuals with a family history of cancer, and for those who carry increased health risks associated with environmental or behavioural factors. If detected early, a cancer may be better controlled with medical advice and treatment.

An individual already diagnosed with cancer may want his or her family members to undergo a Dtect Onco test. This can give a more

comprehensive picture of the prevalence of cancer markers within a family. Hence, family members can be better informed of their

predisposition towards the cancer, and take the necessary steps to maintain their health.
