Why get Genetic Testing?
Personalized screening and prevention
10-15% of inherited cancers are due to inherited genetic mutations.1-3 Knowing you have a mutation that increases your risk allows you and your healthcare provider to create a personalized plan designed to prevent or detect cancers like breast, ovarian, colorectal, and pancreatic at an earlier or more treatable stage.
Relatives may benefit too
Knowing you have a genetic mutation may be important information to share with your relatives. For example, if a man carries a mutation in BRCA1, each of his children has a 50% chance of carrying the same mutation.
Testing negative for a known family mutation can be valuable
If a relative carries a genetic mutation and your results indicate that you do not have the same mutation, you can be confident that you did not inherit it.
How the Color test works
Get a Color kit from Mr Linforth at The Yorkshire Breast Clinic Bingley, after a family history assessment to see whether Color’s hereditary cancer genetic test is right for you.
Provide a saliva sample
Using the tube in your kit, provide a saliva sample. When your sample arrives in the laboratory, Color sequences and analyzes your genes.
Receive your results from Mr Linforth
On average, results are ready 3-4 weeks after the sample is received by Color.
Create a plan with your healthcare provider
Your results can help you and your provider create a personalised screening and prevention plan.
