Genetic Risk Assessment

Hereditary Cancer Genetic and High Risk Assessment

Hereditary cancers account for 5-10% of all cancers. People with hereditary cancer risk have a much higher likelihood of developing cancer in their life. Our program provides screening, counseling, and testing to people with a strong family history of cancer, and those with certain cancer types who would benefit from testing. Our program goals are to reduce cancer incidence, prevent cancer, or find it early – when it is most treatable or curable.

Our genetics team includes an advanced practice nurse with specialty genetic training, working with your oncologist, surgeon, or family doctor. We also offer nutrition, fitness, and behavioral counseling to assist at risk people to reduce their risk in meaningful ways.
