Most people know that cancer can run in the family. What they don’t know is that most cancer types can be directly linked to specific genetic mutations passed down from generation to generation. A quick saliva test makes it possible for physicians to empower their patients to prevent the risks of cancer before it begins.
Mutations in Women
Women with inherited BRCA1 and BRCA2 genetic mutations are up to 76 percent more likely to develop breast and ovarian cancers, compared to an average lifetime risk of 12.3 percent for the general population.
One swab test can help detect mutations which correlate to most well known forms of cancers including brain tumors and melanoma, as well as breast, ovarian, prostate and pancreatic cancers.
