Every patient in your practice should be evaluated for hereditary cancer risk.

The identification and management of family cancer history follows a four-step protocol similar to that used to evaluate Pap tests and clinical breast exams.

It can become a seamless addition to your new-patient assessments and your annual wellness examinations. It will increase early detection, and help you tailor your medical management of patients with inherited risk factors and can help reduce patients' risk of developing cancer.
