Genetic Testing: Benefits for your Patients at Risk for Hereditary Cancer

    • Overview

      What is hereditary cancer and why is genetic testing important to understand a patient's risk? Cancer is complex and has many causes. Most cancers are sporadic, but about 10 to 15 percent of certain cancers are due to harmful genetic changes called mutations that are passed down through families. Learning whether your patient is at risk for hereditary cancer can help you as a healthcare provider to develop a screening and prevention plan that may help identify cancer at an earlier stage. Because men and women with mutations have a 50% chance of passing their mutation to each of their children, learning about hereditary cancer risk is not only important for your patient, but also their family members. Learn more about Color’s Hereditary Cancer Test and the unique program it offers, including complimentary access to genetic counselors.
