Cancer Risk Assessment
Certain risk factors can increase the likelihood of developing cancer. Age, family or personal history and hereditary genetic mutations as well as modifiable factors like smoking, alcohol consumption and obesity all contribute to your risk of developing cancer. Knowing your risk can help determine the screening options that are available to you. Follow the links below and use our preliminary online cancer risk assessment pages to find out if you should request further breast or lung cancer risk assessment with your physician. You may also be at increased risk for cancer other than breast or lung cancer. Ask your physician if you should be referred to genetic counseling for risk assessment or if you should consider earlier or more frequent cancer screening.
