Hereditary cancer testing, made accessible
Empower is a genetic test for those who want to know more about their risk of developing cancer, why it might be common in their family, or want to inform treatment options following a cancer diagnosis.
Empower screens for genes associated with increased risk for common hereditary cancers. Our Empower multi-cancer panels include commonly screened-for genes associated with 12+ types of cancer.
Get Ahead of Cancer: How Previvors Protect Their Health
Cancer previvors are healthy people who know they inherited a high risk for cancer, and can take action to lower their risk. Genetic risk for certain cancers runs in families, dramatically increasing a person’s lifetime risk for developing cancer. If you know you’re at risk, you can take steps to get ahead of cancer.
The Empower™ Hereditary Cancer Test screens your DNA for a wide range of gene variants that are known to impact risk for multiple kinds of cancer. Ask your clinician if Empower is right for you and your family.

Know your risk
Approximately 5 to 10 percent of all cancers can be attributed to inherited variants or mutations. Patterns of cancer can be seen in families where people have these mutations. If you are concerned about cancer patterns in your family, genetic testing can give you more information.
