BRCA1/BRCA2 & Lynch
Do you have a family history of breast, ovarian, uterine or colon cancers? Take this hereditary cancer quiz now to see if you should be concerned: www.hereditarycancerquiz.com.
Orange County Diagnostics is the first out-patient radiology facility offering Hereditary Cancer Risk Testing for BRCA1/BRCA2 gene mutations and Lynch Syndrome. This is done through a simple, painless saliva test which takes approximately two weeks to process. To find out more information, open the following link: www.bracnow.com.
Ovarian cancer is a silent killer and typically goes undetected. Positive test results mean patients have an 87% chance of getting breast and/or ovarian cancer. With this high risk factor, insurance companies typically authorize annual mammograms, breast MRIs and pelvic ultrasounds.
ATTENTION MEN…if there is a family history of breast and/or ovarian cancer, you should consider getting tested because this can be passed down to your children. Keep in mind, men can get breast cancer too.
Orange County Diagnostics does not charge for this procedure; it is all taken care of through Myriad, the lab that created the tests. They will check patient’s benefits to see if they qualify for free testing. Insurance companies pay for most of the test (if not all) if a patient and/or family history presents with certain types of cancer. If insurance does not cover the test or if there is a remaining balance, Myriad offers 24 months Interest Free Financing. The test is $3,500 – an invaluable price that can absolutely save your life!

Patients should know that it is illegal for an insurance company to drop or increase their medical insurance if they test positive. In some cases, if a patient has a family history of these types of cancer and they test negative, it can potentially lower insurance premiums.
