How we create your genetic profile

Genetic risk assessment for 10 cancers

  • Breast (applicable for women and men)
  • Ovarian (for women)
  • Uterine (for women)
  • Prostate (for men)
  • Colorectal
  • Kidney/Renal
  • Melanoma
  • Thyroid
  • Pancreatic
  • Hereditary diffuse gastric cancer

Gene variants that are associated with each respective disease and accurate family information are both important contributions to an effective risk assessment.

Risk assessment

Our risk assessment is based on the third-party risk data and computational models recommended by Swedish national guidelines, as well as your:

  • genetic test results
  • personal medical information
  • family’s medical history

Taking all three into account, we perform a risk analysis and present it to you in the profile. As a result, you will understand your chances of developing a particular type of cancer compared to an average person.

Note that our risk assessment is for the hereditary predisposition – it does not measure the risk of developing cancer caused by non-hereditary factors. Furthermore, it is not a diagnosis. Some people with high risk never have cancer, while people with low risk can still develop it due to a spontaneous mutation. However, understanding your risk levels can help you take reasonable precautions and have a constructive dialogue with your healthcare provider.

Risk management options

In addition to presenting the details of your risk analysis, your profile will include suggestions on how your cancer risk can be managed. According to Cancerfonden, 28% of all cancers are caused by preventable factors. Among the actions you can take are being mindful of your diet, regulating alcohol consumption, and avoiding smoking.

The profiles include lifestyle recommendations that influence cancer risks and are based on the current Swedish guidelines. Where possible, we include screening recommendations to help identify cancer early or name preventative treatments that you can discuss with your healthcare provider.

Please note that risk management and screening options may not be available for all cancer types.

Genetic test

An important step in creating your profile is the genetic test itself. With it, we identify if you have inherited any pathogenic gene variants (also called “mutations”) that are known to cause a highly increased risk of cancer. If such mutations are identified, we will include them in your profile.

Currently, we offer two test options:

Note that our genetic tests are used to find the inherited or germline variants that are passed from your parents. We do not deal with non-inherited variants that cause cancers. To find out more about WGS and WES, visit our Science page.
