Early cancer detection dramatically improves your chances of beating it. If monitored and caught at stage 1, the earliest stage, 98% of women will survive their cancer for 5 years or more after diagnosis.
Often breast cancer develops due to things you can’t affect, such as your age, hormones or density of breast tissue. However, many cancers can also be brought on by mutations in your DNA, including Breast Cancer. In fact, one of the highest risk factors is having a family member with a breast cancer diagnosis.
Having a first-degree relative (mother, sister, or daughter) with breast cancer almost doubles your risk of developing it yourself. Having 2 first-degree relatives increases your risk by 300%.
Our home DNA test requires just a small saliva sample to tell you whether you are at increased risk of developing breast cancer over the next 10 years due to your genetics, compared to the average ‘healthy’ person in the UK.
Knowing your risk means you can take action now to ensure you stay healthy for longer – such as regularly checking your breasts at home and going for regular screening and mammograms.
