NEW DELHI, November 8, 2017 /PRNewswire/ --

A little knowledge goes a long way!

Women always tend

to forget the need to balance their own health and family. In the modern era, women want to see themselves at par with men, and they are often juggling between the office work and home chores. Due to so much of pressure that a woman faces on a daily
basis, they often ignore the early signs of breast and ovarian cancer. Breast Cancer is the most common cancer among women of the modern world. Incidences of breast and ovarian cancers are increasing day by day. "In India, Breast Cancer accounts for 25% to 31% of all cancers in women," as quoted by National Health Portal (NHP).

Oncodonais an advanced genetic test that can help one understand and identify the hereditary risk for developing breast and ovarian cancers. The test helps one to learn about their risk for these cancers, consult with the doctor and develop a strategy to reduce the risk or screen these diseases at an early stage.

Oncodona uses Next Generation Sequencing (NGS) to analyze genetic information present in a panel of 21 genes, including BRCA1 and BRCA2, in the process to screen harmful mutations. BRCA1 and BRCA2 are human genes that are associated with cell growth, cell division and DNA repair. Mutation changes in these genes can often result in a failure to repair the DNA that can lead to the development of cancer, especially breast and ovarian cancer.

Why to go forOncodona test?

In the cases of hereditary ovarian and breast cancers, it is essential to perform intensive tests to screen for cancer in its early stage so that there is a higher probability of a successful treatment. In case of people with mutations, there are several preventive options to deal with the cancer risk. These measures include intensive screening for early diagnosis, lifestyle changes and even preventive actions for siblings and children.

Who should go for Oncodona test?

Oncodonais a simple and complete test for all women who want to have the maximum information about their personal risk of developing cancer. If a person has inherited a harmful mutation, it means that each of their brothers or sisters also have 50% chance of inheriting that mutation. If a family member has been identified with these two deadly cancers then they should definitely go for this simple test.

Why it is important to self-examine regularly?

No doubt consulting a doctor and getting oneself checked is important but self examinations are really important to catch breast cancer at an early stage. Performing breast self-examination at least once a month is considered wise. Any strange lump needs to be taken care of, especially if they are present for more than a week. If a lump stays for a longer period, then taking help of the doctor immediately is required.

Don't ignore the early signs; every woman is important for her family. Oncodonatest is the best way to get screened.
