Knowing your patients’ hereditary risk for cancer is the first step in preventing cancer or facilitating early diagnosis. Myriad’s Hereditary Cancer Quiz is a 30-second quiz that can help you determine which of your patients might benefit from hereditary cancer testing. The quiz assists you in identifying red flags in a patient’s personal or family history that might suggest genetic risk factors for cancer.
Our Hereditary Cancer Quiz will help you determine if your patients may be at risk for the following hereditary cancers:*
- Breast Cancer
- Colon Cancer
- Ovarian Cancer
- Pancreatic Cancer
- Uterine Cancer
The quiz is designed to help you identify patients for hereditary cancer testing, but it does not take the place of a full screening. All patients should undergo further evaluation to determine whether testing is appropriate.
*The questions in the Hereditary Cancer Quiz are based on the clinical guidelines used to determine whether individuals should be tested for one of the syndromes associated with the cancers listed above. This is not a test, but rather a questionnaire to help determine whether or not an individual is at risk so that they can be prepared to talk to their healthcare professional about further evaluation of their personal and family history of cancer.
