Dr. Koltzova-Rang works in partnership with Myriad Genetics to offer their “myRisk™” hereditary cancer screening, a 25-gene panel that
combines genetic testing with family history to identify elevated risk for eight cancers. The doctor and her patients can then use the test results to come up with an individualized plan for further testing and treatment. For example, a person who shows an elevated risk for melanoma might have more frequent and intensive screening than a person without the same risk factors. On the other side, patients are often relieved to find out that, despite a family history of a certain kind of cancer, their own risk level is low.
