Do you or a blood relative (sibling, half-sibling, parent, child, aunt/uncle, niece/nephew, grandparent, grandchild, or cousin) have any of the following?
Early-onset breast cancer (at age 50 or younger)
Male breast cancer
Breast cancer and Ashkenazi Jewish ancestry
3 or more relatives on the same side of the family with any of the following cancers: breast, ovarian, prostate, or pancreatic.
If so, genetic testing may be right for you. Please proceed to Step 2 and watch a brief video about genetic testing for hereditary cancer.
If none of the above situations apply to you but you are interested in learning more about genetic testing, please talk to your healthcare provider about next steps. Genetic testing may still be an important option for you, especially if you have a family history of cancers not listed above or if you have a relative who has tested positive for a genetic variant related to cancer.
Genetic testing looks at your genes to see if there are any changes, called variants, that may impact your health. The video explains how genetic testing can help you plan for a healthy future.
Invitae’s tests include consultations with a genetic counselor. Genetic counselors are a vital resource who can help you throughout the genetic testing process. They are experts at explaining complex genetic concepts and helping people understand what their genetic test results mean for themselves and their family members.
Invitae’s board-certified genetic counselors are available by telephone to answer your questions about genetic testing, including:
On-demand conversations to answer your questions about testing and test results
A comprehensive genetic counseling session
After you receive your test results, an Invitae genetic counselor will review your personal and family medical history and then explain what your genetic test results may mean for you and your family members. If your test result was positive, genetic testing may be recommended for your family members.
