Approximately 1 in 8 women (12.5%) will develop breast cancer in their lifetime.
10-15% of most cancers are hereditary1, 2, 3, 4
Hereditary cancers are caused by inherited genetic mutations.
Early detection saves lives5
Breast cancer survival rates increase from 25% to 98% when caught early.
Clinical-grade genetics you can count on.
Unlike recreational genetic tests, Color’s precision health program offers clinical results, genetic counseling services, and actionable next steps.*
* The Color test does not diagnose cancer. It is a physician-ordered test that can provide information about your risk for common hereditary cancers. While most people are not at an increased risk of hereditary cancer, knowing your genetic risk can help you and your doctor develop a personalized screening and prevention plan.
NIH Awards Color $4.6 million to provide Genetic Counseling for million-person study.
