Does Cancer Run In Your Family ?

Cancer may be inherited if:

It occurs at a young age (e.g., below 50)

It develops in multiple family members

There are rare cancers in a family

Cancers can be inherited from either the mother’s or father’s side of the family.

Mutations in genes passed from parent to child can drastically increase the risk of disease, including many types of cancer.

The ongoing discovery of genes involved in cancer allows us to test for cancer-causing mutations in those genes.

If you have a mutation that puts you at increased risk of cancer, you and your doctor can take action to reduce your risk of developing the disease.

There are effective options to help lower your risk of cancer such as earlier and more intensive screening, preventive medications and risk-reducing surgeries. Once the potential risk of cancer is identified, you and your healthcare professional can choose the best way to possibly delay, or even possibly prevent, the development of certain cancers.

Myriad myRisk® Hereditary Cancer

It tests for eight inherited cancers including breast, ovarian, colon, skin (melanoma), uterine, pancreatic, gastric and prostate cancer.

myRisk provide vital information to help people with a strong personal or family history of cancer understand their own risk of developing the disease. With this information, they can take steps to potentially prevent cancer, delay the onset of the disease or catch it at an earlier stage when outcomes and survival rates are better.

Myriad myRisk® Hereditary Cancer panel can help you and your physician determine your cancer risk for eight primary cancers:

  • I had a very strong family history of cancer. My mother had breast cancer while my father died because of prostate cancer. As cancer runs in families i was always scared so i underwent myRisk test. My reports came negative which relieved me from this constant stress and fear.

  • Both my grandmother and mother had ovarian cancer. I underwent the myRisk test a year back. My reports came positive for BRCA mutation. I underwent a prophylactic surgery which reduced my risk to breast cancer by 95% and risk of ovarian cancer by more than 50%


Reports provides information that allows physicians to:

  • Better understand a patients’ risk for specific health conditions

  • Prescribe more suitable medications at optimal dosages for patients, as needed.

  • Suggest early lifestyle and diet interventions to help control or prevent certain health conditions.
