National Poll Shows Public Divided on Genetic Testing to Predict Cancer Risk

National Poll Shows Public Divided on Genetic Testing to Predict Cancer Risk | Lung Cancer Dispatch | Scoop.it

"A national poll from the University of Utah's Huntsman Cancer Institute shows 34% of respondents would not seek genetic testing to predict their likelihood of developing a hereditary cancer—even if the cost of the testing was not an issue.


"Concerns about employment and insurability were cited as the primary reason, even though current laws prohibit such discrimination.

The poll also shows only 35% percent of respondents would be extremely or very likely to seek aggressive prophylactic or preventive treatment, such as a mastectomy, if they had a family history of cancer and genetic testing indicated a genetic predisposition to cancer."
