Many men and women who have a family history of cancer often wonder what their own risk is of developing the disease. Advances in diagnostic technology now make it possible to find out. At Associates in Women’s Health, we offer the Myriad myRISK™ hereditary cancer test – one of the most comprehensive risk detectors on the market.
What is Myriad MyRISK™?
Developed by Myriad Genetics, the myRISK™ hereditary cancer test utilizes a 25-gene panel that accurately identifies the risk factors for eight of the most important cancers, including:
The myRISK™ risk detection test captures more mutation carriers than BRACAnalysis® and COLARIS® combined, with studies showing a 40-50 percent increase in mutation detection. This hereditary cancer testing technology is revolutionizing the industry by:
- Blending genetic testing status with family and personal cancer history into actionable risk assessment and follow-up
- Providing a report to patients that is simple, clear and easy to use
- For patients who test positive or negative, the myRISK™ test provides specific medical management suggestions based on the guidelines of leading professional medical societies
While testing for cancer risk is a process that requires advanced science, each myRISK™ report is user-friendly and includes the test results as well as a personalized cancer risk and management guide. This not only accurately and precisely evaluates your risk for eight cancers, it also provides clear guidelines for how you can take control of your health, regardless of how positively or negatively you test.
