Prostate cancer
Account for 10% of total prostate cancer Rare genetic variantsBRCA1, BRCA2, ETC
common genetic variants Total number of SNPs
Cacner-related rare genetic changes are very powerful, but account for less than 10% of cancer. Although each effect of common genetic variants is minimal, combined forces can cause cancer
Polygenic Risk Score
A “Polygenic Risk Score” is one way by which people can learn about their risk of developing a disease, based on their common genetic variants related to the disease Genetic variants associated with cancer is very large and diverse. From rare mutation to common mutations found in one in two.
Procagen considers the importance of each of the numerous genetic variants and presents the risk of cancer as a score.
