myRisk is Identifying Risk for Your Patients

myRisk Hereditary Cancer Panel

Multi-gene panel determines hereditary cancer risk associated with 8 cancer sites:

  • Breast
  • Ovarian
  • Colorectal
  • Endometrial
  • Melanoma
  • Pancreatic
  • Gastric
  • Prostate
riskScore® Breast Cancer Prediction Tool

Clinically validated to predict both a woman’s 5-year, and remaining lifetime risk of developing breast cancer using genetic markers and clinical risk factors:

  • More than 80 well-studied genetic markers linked to breast cancer risk
  • Tyrer-Cuzick factors
myRisk Management Tool (MMT)

Test results are accompanied with the MMT which summarizes professional society guidelines for medical management based on patient’s individual results. Interventions are proven to reduce future risk of cancer
