Is It In My Genes?
A new program identifies patients at risk for inherited gene mutation

Breast Cancer and Beyond
Bethesda Women’s Health Center is proud to now offer a revolutionary new clinical genetic testing program for inherited cancer risk called myRisk™ Hereditary Cancer with Myriad Genetics Laboratory. Patients determined to be at high risk for a gene mutation and who choose to continue with further analysis will submit a saliva or blood sample for analysis at the Myriad laboratory.
“This new panel test can broadly target specific cancer sites to identify clinically significant mutations impacting inherited risks for eight important cancers: breast, colorectal, ovarian, endometrial, gastric, pancreatic, melanoma and prostate,” says Dr. Adami.
The cost of genetic testing can vary depending on the type of testing needed. Most insurance companies, including Medicare, cover the cost when specific criteria are met. Results are usually available within four weeks. A physician referral is not necessary.
