    Are you talking about Genetic profiling studies? Generally, high-risk individuals (with a strong family history of cancer) go for such tests. If you have such family history, you must consult your doctor and then proceed.

    These tests are not all created equal. To get useful feedback, you need to specify which ones you are considering and why. In any case, your physician is the best source of such information. There's a lot of shady advertising that goes on especially in countries where direct-to-consumer medical marketing is legal.
