MyCheck Cancer Female assesses tumor-associated mutations that are being passed along from generation to generation.
Cancer is the world’s second deadliest disease, so it’s unfortunate but no surprise that many fami-lies have at least a few members who have had cancer. Sometimes, certain types of cancer seem to run in some families, breast cancer being a very common one. Although this is often referred to as inherited cancer, what is inherited is the abnormal gene that can lead to cancer, not the cancer itself.
Women that inherit these abnormal genes are more susceptible to cancer development. Identify-ing those at high risk enables implementation of additional screening, surveillance, and interven-tions.
