Discover What DNA Reveals About Your Cancer Risk
Our Clinical Genomics Program is here to help you feel informed about your cancer risk. Those patients scheduling their annual screen appointments (at a participating site) will be provided a cancer risk assessment to complete as part of their appointment check-in process.
Those patients who complete the cancer risk assessment will be contacted by a nurse navigator who will provide them with their cancer risk profile. If you are at high-risk, you may receive:
- High-risk surveillance pathways
- Genetic testing and genetic counseling
- Cascade testing for your family
Genetics and Cancer Risk
It’s well established that having pathogenic variants in BRCA 1/2 (and other genes) puts individuals at a much higher risk of developing hereditary cancers, primarily breast and/or ovarian cancers. Likewise, it’s well established that there are several genes associated with a higher risk of developing gastrointestinal and/or colorectal cancer, including the Lynch syndrome. Those with Lynch syndrome are also at a higher risk of developing other cancers, such as uterine, stomach, liver, kidney, and brain cancers, at a young age (<50 years old).
