Are you missing patients who need genetic testing?

It’s national hereditary breast & ovarian cancer week.
Are you ensuring that all patients who qualify for genetic testing get it?

  • An estimated 1.2 to 1.3 million women in the US with breast or ovarian cancer who qualified for genetic testing failed to receive it1
  • More than 70% of patients with breast cancer and 80% of patients with ovarian cancer never even discussed genetic testing with their physician1  
  • Yet testing can uncover actionable findings, leading to a significant change in clinical management2,3
