myBRCA HiRisk is a screening test to help you understand your risk for hereditary breast and ovarian cancer. Click here to view the myBRCA HiRisk tech sheet.
Why are the BRCA genes important?
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. myBRCA HiRisk is a screening test that identifies variants in 26 genes, including BRCA1 and BRCA2, which are associated with increased risk for developing breast, ovarian, and other cancer types.
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.
