myBRCA

A simple screening test to help you understand your risk for hereditary breast and ovarian cancer.

Why should you get screened?

The BRCA genes (BRCA1 and BRCA2) are part of your body’s natural defense system. They protect you from developing certain cancers. If you have a BRCA gene that is not working properly (meaning, it carries a harmful mutation), your lifetime risk of developing breast, ovarian and other cancers increases significantly.1,2

BRCA mutations can significantly increase your lifetime risk of developing breast and/or ovarian cancer.1,2

A BRCA mutation can increase the lifetime risk of breast cancer in women from 12% to up to 80% by age 80.3
