Why Hereditary Cancer Testing with Myriad®?
REDUCES FALSE NEGATIVESAt Myriad there is not an acceptable false negative rate. We invest heavily in new technologies and techniques to make sure we minimize the potential for error.
EARLIER INTERVENTIONIdentifying cancer at an earlier stage provides you important information to better treat your patients and prevent secondary cancers.
SAVES TIME & MONEYNot only will the testing process be painless, the cost of the test is also painless with Myriad. The Myriad Promise is our commitment to provide patients with accurate and affordable genetic results.
Who is myRisk intended for?MyRisk testing is for both women and men. If a patient has a personal or family history of cancer, hereditary cancer testing is the only way to determine if that patient has hereditary, familial or general population risk of developing a future cancer. Individuals with familial or hereditary cancer risk have a much greater chance of developing cancer during their lifetime.
How does myRisk Hereditary Cancer Testing Work?Testing is quick and easy. If you recommend hereditary cancer testing for a patient it can be done in your practice. Your staff will first collect a blood or saliva sample from the patient using a special kit which will be shipped to Myriad for analysis. The patient’s test results will then be mailed to your practice, or can be found online through your MyriadPro® account within approximately 2 weeks. The results will give you and your patient’s valuable information to use to create a personalized plan to prevent cancer, identify cancer at an earlier, more treatable stage or prevent a secondary cancer from occurring.
