Building the Profile:
Family History + Genetic Data

Our Risk Assessment Program (RAP) was one of the first in the nation to offer screening, education, and counseling to healthy people at increased genetic risk for disease.

A combination of your family history and your genetic data is used to build a profile of your risk for all cancer types, including — but not limited to — breast, ovarian, uterine, gastrointestinal (including colon), prostate, thyroid, and melanoma.
