Who is MyRisk intended for?

MyRisk testing is for both women and men. If a patient has a personal or family history of cancer, hereditary cancer testing is the only way to determine if that patient has hereditary, familial or general population risk of developing a future cancer. Individuals with familial or hereditary cancer risk have a much greater chance of developing cancer during their lifetime.

How does MyRisk Hereditary Cancer Testing work?

Testing is quick and easy. If you recommend hereditary cancer testing for a patient, it can be done in your practice. Your staff will first collect a blood or saliva sample from the patient using a special kit, which will be shipped to Myriad for analysis. The patient’s test results will then be mailed to your practice or can be found online through your MyriadPro® account within approximately 2 weeks. The results will give you and your patient valuable information to use to create a personalized plan to potentially prevent cancer, identify cancer at an earlier, more treatable stage or prevent a secondary cancer from occurring.

Results of a MyRisk Hereditary Cancer Test can vary




Variant of uncertain significance

Myriad’s RNA Analysis reduces the rate of uncertain variants for the most accurate results

Myriad offers RNA analysis to all patients with an eligible variant of unknown significance (VUS) after MyRisk testing is complete. Myriad will notify the healthcare provider when RNA analysis could help classify variants, giving providers and patients access to this valuable tool regardless of when, where or how their MyRisk test was submitted.
