If you have a personal or family history of cancer, genetic testing for cancer risk can help you understand your individual risk, allowing you and your provider to make informed healthcare decisions.
Know Your Risk. Plan for your Future.
Hereditary cancer testing is a type of genetic test that can help you and your healthcare provider find out if you’re at higher risk for developing cancer due to certain types of genetic changes that may have been passed down through your family.
If you have a significant personal or family history of cancer, MyRisk can help you understand your own risk of developing 11 different types of cancer. It can also provide important information for your family members if your test reveals a genetic change associated with hereditary cancer.
Your test results will include an individualized report with steps you and your healthcare provider can take to actively manage, and possibly lower, your cancer risk.
For most patients, MyRisk test results also include RiskScore, a personalized five-year and remaining lifetime risk for developing breast cancer. Available to people of all ancestries, this information can help you and your healthcare provider manage your risk now and into the future.
Knowing if you are at higher risk for cancer allows you to make potentially life-saving medical decisions.
You and your healthcare provider can work together to create a personalized plan to possibly reduce your risk of developing cancer or increase the likelihood of finding cancer at an earlier and more treatable stage.
Additional or modified screening such as increased mammograms or the addition of breast MRIs may find cancer at an earlier and more treatable stage.
There are medications that can lower your risk for certain cancers.
Certain surgeries can greatly lower your risk.
If you’ve been diagnosed with cancer, your test results may help determine appropriate treatment options for you.
