Genetic testing could save your family’s life
As you learn to navigate life after treatment, it’s important to understand that cancer doesn’t have an on/off switch. Up to 1 in 6¹ men with prostate cancer have a genetic mutation that may have caused their cancer. Germline hereditary cancer or genetic testing is the only way to identify this risk and your personalized results can directly impact current and future treatment decisions. Your results can also provide your family with peace of mind by informing them of their risk of developing hereditary cancers in the future.
