Breast cancer genes included in this panel: ATM, BRCA1, BRCA2, CHEK2, CYP1A2, TP53.
Some of the genes connected to breast cancer can have odds of up to 90% chance of a person developing breast cancer. You may have heard of some celebrities that had mastectomies as a prevention due to the fact they had such genes. BRCA blood tests can cost up to several thousands. This report is a good place to start and includes the most important breast cancer genes including BRCA1 and BRCA2. Normally, BRCA genes work to suppress tumors from growing. But when these genes are mutated, they are no longer able to help suppress tumors, leading to an increased risk of cancer.
We were able to extract many of the most important SNPs from the raw data of ancestry.com, 23andme and myheritage.
If you would like to take a proactive approach to your health this is a good report for you. We believe all women should get this report because we believe in being proactive and not reactive. Although women are the 1st candidates for this report men should also consider this report because mutations in these genes could be passed on to their children. In addition, if you have an inherited BRCA mutation, you could be at an increased risk of developing prostate and pancreatic cancer in addition to breast and ovarian cancer.
Although we believe everyone should get this report the highest risk candidates are: Ashkenazi Jews and women with history of breast or ovarian cancer in their family or themselves.

- A breast cancer risk calculator based on your results
- A breast cancer risk assessment tool designed by scientists to estimate a woman’s risk of developing breast cancer
