Why Panel Testing?

Lynch and HBOC Venn Diagram

Hereditary cancer panel testing optimizes patient care through increased clinical sensitivity (mutation detection). Testing a broader number of genes associated with multiple cancer risks increases clinical sensitivity. For example, many patients have personal and family history that may be explained by more than one syndrome. One patient may meet Lynch syndrome criteria and another may meet HBOC syndrome criteria. However, there are a significant number of patients that meet criteria for both Lynch and HBOC syndromes, among other risks.

Retrospective analysis of patients recorded at Myriad (2006-2013)

6.9% of patients appropriate for HBOC testing also meet Lynch criteria

30% of patients appropriate for Lynch testing also meet HBOC criteria


Myriad myRisk® Hereditary Cancer increases mutation detection by 40-50% in patients appropriate for HBOC or Lynch testing.

The following case study illustrates a patient with a complex family history of cancer. A well designed hereditary cancer panel test will assess multiple genes with syndromic overlap, reducing the complexity of test selection so you can focus on optimizing medical management for your patient. Family Cancer History Personal Cancer History Relying on single syndrome testing, the cost and time taken for multiple tests may have reduced the possibility of identifying this patient’s mutation. Learn why Myriad myRisk is the most accurate test for hereditary cancer panels.

The easy to use, online Hereditary Cancer Quiz can help you identify appropriate patients for Myriad myRisk® hereditary cancer testing before or during your patient’s scheduled appointment. This tool can help you identify patients for testing, but it does not take the place of a full screening. All patients should be further evaluated to determine whether testing is appropriate.

What does the Hereditary Cancer Quiz Do?

  • Immediately provide a result when one "red flag" is indicated in the patient's history
  • Quickly identifies appropriate patients often in less than 30 seconds
  • Provides a patient education video
  • Accessible on most devices
  • Links to clinical guidelines to support the red flags

What does the Family History Tool Do?

  • Helps identify patients who may be appropriate for hereditary cancer testing
  • Collects a thorough cancer family history
  • Generates a 4-generation pedigree
  • Lists all red flags indicted in the family
  • Provides a chart summary of both the patient and the family
  • Takes 6 minutes on average to complete
