If you have tested positive for a cancer gene mutation, it does not mean you definitely will have cancer. However, your chance of developing cancer will be higher than the general population.
If you carry a gene mutation linked to a higher chance of developing cancer, you should:
|Variant calling – SNP||>99%*#|
|Variant calling – Indel||>99%*#|
* Passed GenQA/UK NEQAS external quality assurance
# The interpretation of sequencing variants is based on the current understanding of the variants at the time it was observed, which may change over time as more information about the genes becomes available. Not all variants are represented in this report.
