Everyone has a risk for developing cancer. In many cases, the cause of the cancer can be hard to determine. But in some cases, the reason cancer develops is in plain view: approximately 5%–10% of all cancers are thought to be caused by mutations in genes associated with hereditary cancer syndromes.1
If you’re wondering about hereditary cancers, we can help with genetic testing that can determine whether you have a mutation that increases your risk to develop certain cancers.
Should you be found to have an inherited mutation, more comprehensive medical management may be offered by your physician, including increased surveillance and screening for those cancers and the option of risk-reducing medical treatments and intervention.
