You are low risk for known inherited cancer syndromes.
Based on your answers, there does not appear to be a pattern of cancer in your family. You could still get cancer in the future, but your risk based on your family history does not appear to be elevated for known cancer syndromes.
Things You Can Do Now
Test Your Risk
To pursue genetic testing on your own, the lab’s independent network of physicians and genetic counselors will order the test on your behalf. You can still keep your own provider in the loop. Typically you can’t pay with insurance.
Below are some other providers of high quality cancer risk tests. For these, you will need your doctor’s help to order.
This is not a comprehensive list and Any Mountain does not endorse or have a relationship with any genetic testing provider.
Talk to a Genetic Counselor
If you don’t know where to begin, a genetic counselor can help you. Ask your provider for a local genetic counselor reference.
Get Informed about Cancer
Learn about your body and the signs and symptoms of gynecologic and other cancers.
Know Your Genes
Genes are bits of DNA we inherit from our biological parents that give our cells instructions about how to function. Genes determine things we can see, like eye color, and things we cannot see, like cancer risk.
For more information about genes and how they work, visit the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
Join the Climb
Get Involved with Any Mountain
We are climbing the Everest of ovarian cancer, and the world’s tallest mountain stands at 29,029 feet. It can be summited if we put just one foot forward at a time.
The Any Mountain Expedition Team, a unique group of leading ovarian cancer specialists, will use funds raised to reach the pinnacle of cancer research: PREVENTION.
The Any Mountain Project
The Any Mountain project is using creativity and research to raise awareness of ovarian cancer and the genetic risks that increase your likelihood of disease. Know your history. Save your future.

Thanks to the incredible musicians who collaborated on the Any Mountain song.
The Any Mountain project started as a song, written by Dr. Joanie Mayer Hope. It tells the story of diagnosis, treatment, and survival of ovarian cancer from a patient’s perspective. Dr. Hope was inspired by the many powerful applications of music in telling stories of struggle and survival.
