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).

Is Knowledge Power?

What if doctors could uncover your risk for disease and help you prevent it? Or determine whether a therapy or dose of medicine will be effective for your specific health needs? What if your health care plan was based on a sample size of 1 – just you?

With genomic profiles, physicians and researchers can determine with unprecedented accuracy if someone is at risk for cancer, heart disease and other conditions. From disease prevention to diagnosis to treatment, genomics is the future of medicine and will be an essential component of all health care.

In 2019, we began laying the foundation for our comprehensive program — AdventHealth Genomics and Personalized Health — which will ultimately provide comprehensive genomics testing, analysis, interpretation and genetic counseling services.

When it comes to treating the whole person, our genomics program will deliver on the renewed focus we promised during the launch of our new brand, AdventHealth. We believe personalized medicine that focuses on the whole person is superior health care and nothing is more personal than your DNA.

At AdventHealth, we believe knowledge is power.
