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’s valuable information to use to create a personalized plan to prevent cancer, identify cancer at an earlier, more treatable stage or prevent a secondary cancer from occurring.
