Understand your genetic risk for breast and ovarian cancer.
Hereditary cancer is caused by an inherited genetic mutation. It is typical to see a recurring pattern of cancer across two to three generations—like multiple individuals diagnosed with the same type of cancer(s) and individuals diagnosed with cancer much younger than average.
Color analyzes 19 genes—including BRCA1 and BRCA2—to help you understand your risk of developing breast and ovarian cancer.
Knowing that you have a mutation that increases your risk of developing breast or ovarian cancer allows you and your healthcare provider to create a personalized screening plan, which increases the chance of early detection. The 5-year survival rate for both breast and ovarian cancer increases dramatically when either is caught at an earlier and more treatable stage.
