Patient Care Begins with Knowledge

Breast cancer

Myriad Oncology can provide information that will help you understand the nature of your patients’ breast cancer to make better informed treatment decisions. Every case of breast cancer is different, and Myriad offers both germline and somatic tests that can help you confidently move forward with a plan specific to each patient, as well as provide them information on familial risk.

Patient care begins with knowledge and your patients deserve accurate and actionable test results that you trust.

Myriad Oncology's Tests for Breast Cancer and What Answers They Provide:

Hereditary cancer testing

myRisk genetic testing
The Myriad myRisk® test is a 35-gene cancer panel that will provide your patients with breast cancer information on:
  • Whether or not their breast cancer is hereditary (or caused by a genetic mutation) – Up to 14% of all breast cancers are hereditary.1
  • Their risk of developing additional cancers – Having a BRCA1 or BRCA2 mutation puts breast cancer patients at a much higher risk of developing other cancers, such as a second breast cancer or ovarian cancer, than the general public.
  • Potential surgical considerations and treatment eligibility for your patient – A patient’s BRCA status can help determine available surgical options and identify additional treatment options.2
  • Potential hereditary cancer risk for family members – Knowing mutation status provides the opportunity for family members to take proactive screening and/or preventative surgical measures if appropriate.
By incorporating leading medical society guidelines into the results through our myRisk Medical Management Tool, myRisk can provide comprehensive information about your patient’s unique cancer. Using industry leading accuracy, unmatched turnaround time, and a lifetime commitment to patients, myRisk is an essential part of all breast cancer workups. 
myRisk fast cancer testing

myRisk STAT® offers expedited results (one week) of 11 breast cancer genes for surgery-pending or time-sensitive patients with the full report delivered within 14 days. 

Breast Cancer Tumor Testing – To guide treatment and risk management decisions

EndoPredict breast cancer testing

EndoPredict® is a genomic test for women with ER+/HER2–, early-stage, node-negative and node-positive breast cancer. EndoPredict provides three separate results you and your patient can use when determining the treatments that are right for them. These three results answer the following questions: 

  • What is the risk that my patient will experience a distant recurrence within 10 years if they are treated with 5 years of hormone therapy alone?  
  • To what extent might chemotherapy treatment reduce the risk of distant recurrence (chemo-benefit)? 
  • What is my patient’s 5-15 year risk of distant recurrence?  Can my patient safely stop hormone treatment (aka endocrine therapy) at five years? 

BRca testing - to help determine which patients may be appropriate for parp inhibitor therapy

BRACAnalysis CDx cancer testing

BRACAnalysis CDx® can help determine which of your patients with HER2-negative locally advanced or metastatic breast cancer are appropriate for PARP Inhibitor therapy by identifying if they have a germline BRCA1/2 mutation. This test was designed and FDA-approved to provide BRCA1/2 results quickly and accurately.

Breast Cancer prediction tool

riskScore breast cancer screening

riskScore® is a breast cancer risk prediction tool. For eligible women that are unaffected by breast cancer, riskScore uses genetic markers and clinical factors to give insight into a 5-year and remaining lifetime risk of developing breast cancer.*
