We offer hereditary cancer testing at Northpointe using the Myriad myRisk® test. Blending both genetic test status and personal cancer family history, Myriad myRisk hereditary cancer panel represents the next generation of hereditary cancer risk testing.
Cancer is caused by harmful changes, known as mutations, in a person’s genes. These mutations play an important role in the development of cancer. While most mutations occur by chance or lifestyle and environmental factors; some mutations are passed down through our family and can cause what is called hereditary cancer. Your doctor will review your personal and family medical history to determine if this testing may be right for you.
