myBRCA HiRisk

A screening test that identifies mutations in 26 genes, including BRCA1 and BRCA2, which are associated with increased risk for developing breast, ovarian, and other inherited cancers.

Why should you get screened?

You might consider myBRCA HiRisk if you or one of your close blood relatives* has one or more of the following:

  • Breast cancer at or before age 50
  • 2 or more primary breast cancers in the same individual
  • Ovarian cancer, fallopian tube cancer or primary peritoneal cancer
  • Male breast cancer
  • 3 or more of the following cancers:
    Breast, ovarian, fallopian tube, primary peritoneal, endometrial, pancreatic, prostate, thyroid, colorectal, sarcoma, adrenocortical carcinoma, brain, gastric, gastrointestinal polyps, leukemia, melanoma, and/or kidney
  • A blood relative with a known cancer causing genetic mutation

* Close blood relatives: first-degree (parents, children, siblings), second-degree (grandparents, aunts/uncles, nieces/nephews, half siblings), and third degree (first cousins, great aunts/ uncles/grandparents)

The myBRCA HiRisk test will:

1
Help you understand your risk of developing hereditary breast, ovarian, and other inherited cancers
2
Help identify family members who are potentially at-risk
3
Improve the odds of early detection and prevention
4
Help guide management and/or treatment options depending on which genes are involved

If you are not at high risk but are still interested in a BRCA1 and BRCA2 screening test, please check out myBRCA.

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

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