Put your genes to the test.
Some genetic tests are about your family's past. This is about a healthy future.
Understand certain health risks that get passed from one generation to the next with our Genetic Insights offering.
Most people don't know if they have a genetic health risk.
1 in 8 women will develop breast cancer at some point in their lives.* And if you have an inherited risk, that number is higher.
Many cases of colon cancer have no symptoms. Knowing your genetic health risk and getting regular screening tests are two great ways to help prevent colon cancer.
Cardiomyopathy (enlarged heart) is the most common type of genetic heart disease in the US. And many people who have a genetic health risk for it don't know it.
Ever hear of familial hypercholesterolemia? It’s a type of inherited high cholesterol that seriously increases your risk for heart problems. And only about 10% of people who have it know it.
Not all genetic health tests are created equal.
The difference in how many variants a test looks for can be big. In the detection of BRCA1 and BRCA2 variants linked to cases of HBOC (hereditary breast and ovarian cancer):

• This next-generation sequencing (NGS) test detects 80% of HBOC cases
