The importance of healthcare planning and risk assessment.

Cancer is one of the leading causes of death. In Hong Kong, cancer is the number one killer, accounting for 30.5% of all registered deaths in 2016. Likewise, in China, close to 20% of the total population is at risk of developing cancer before the age of 75.

Poor diet, lifestyle and psychological stress can also bring about the early onset of cancers. However, a healthy diet and lifestyle don’t always prevent cancer.

Sometimes, it is genetics. Understanding and assessing your level of cancer risk and that of your family can lead to a better health management and planning. Remember, detecting cancer early saves lives, and most cases of cancer are preventable.

Wealth and health are the most important aspects of everyone's life.

Cancer Predisposition

Cancer Predisposition is an increased likelihood of developing a certain cancer type due to a person’s genetic makeup. Early screening allows for identification of a person’s cancer risk profile so that they can make relevant lifestyle changes or prepare care management in response to this risk. 

Carrier Testing

Carrier Testing is used to identify individuals who carry one copy of a specific gene mutation that, when present in two copies, can cause a genetic disorder. The test is useful in assessing a couple’s risk of having a child with a genetic condition.
