myBRCA is a screening test to screen for hereditary breast and ovarian cancer risk. Click here to view the myBRCA tech sheet.
What are the BRCA genes, and what does your test screen for?
The BRCA genes are part of your body's natural defense system. They help protect you from developing cancer. If you have a BRCA gene that is not working properly (meaning, it carries a harmful variant), your lifetime risk of developing breast, ovarian and other cancers increases significantly. Veritas' myBRCA test screens for variants in the BRCA1 and BRCA2 genes.
Any result, negative, positive or inconclusive, should become a part of how you and your physician evaluate your health and clinical needs. For more information, check out this possible outcomes sheet or watch the video below.
