We also offer testing to see if you have any mutations in your genes that could increase your risk of developing common cancers, including colorectal, pancreatic, prostate, ovarian, uterine, stomach, and breast cancer. This type of genetic testing is done through a blood or saliva sample. It typically takes about three weeks after the sample is collected for results to be shared with your Hancock Health provider.But treating cancer is only part of the battle.
