What brought you to Eiira?

My mother was diagnosed with ovarian cancer in her 40s. Another relative on my father’s side also had a cancer diagnosis. I was afraid that these diseases might be hereditary. So, I have always been very conscious about my health and lifestyle – exercising and following a good diet. As I was approaching 40, I became anxious about my chances of getting cancer as well.

I thought that the best way to deal with this anxiety was to find out what my risks were, based on my genes. First, I turned to the public healthcare system. I submitted a self-referral (“egenremiss”) and waited. Two months later, I still had not received any response. I didn’t know how long I would have to wait or what would happen next. Besides, I may or may not be eligible, and this uncertainty made me more impatient and frustrated.

I then heard about the service offered at Eiira Genetics and immediately decided to try it out. I chose the Eiira Classic profile as my main concern was inherited cancer risks. I really like that they will have a detailed explanation of the risk level and give measures to control risks.

What was your experience with Eiira?

“I was anxious about my risk, but now I can breathe and live again!”

The process itself was very straightforward. I received a test kit, spat into the test tube, and sent it back. I also shared my family tree and medical history as much as possible, which was easy. After about eight weeks, I received my profile report. 

Seeing the report, I was relieved. The genetic test showed that I had not inherited any of the genetic mutations I was worried about. The report clearly explained that I do not have a significantly increased cancer risk. The report also shared some lifestyle recommendations for reducing the risk of cancer, which I could add to my habits.

I also liked that after completing the genetic test and having received the risk profile, I can have updates on new discoveries about cancer. Staying informed gives me peace of mind. I feel I can breathe and live again!
