In brief: No reliable test

There is no test like that.
There are companies offering comprehensive genomic mapping etc- however, i would not recommend it as it is not primetime yet. There are a lot of questions in regard to that - ie. Not clear how reliable it is, how would you interprete the result , what is the consequency etc. It is for sure will increase your anxiety level. Discuss with your md in detail.
