One in eight women will develop breast cancer over her lifetime and most will have no significant family history of the disease. In fact, 85% of all breast cancers are non-hereditary and sporadic. Whether you have high, medium, or low risk, you can always take some risk reduction actions such as lifestyle modification, breast mammography, or taking risk-reducing medication.

GeneType for Breast Cancer is a simple saliva test your healthcare provider can order, and it is the only test that gives you a comprehensive and highly accurate risk prediction score based on common genetic factors with traditional risk markers.
