Cancer

Being diagnosed with a hereditary condition can be scary. That’s why early detection is so important and can make all the difference in the world when it comes to getting in front of a disease.

Types of Cancer

Sporadic Cancer
Happens by chance in one or two related family members, typically at older ages
Familial Cancer
A clustering of cancer in a family that may be due to genes and/or other shared factors, such as environment and lifestyle
Hereditary Cancer
A clustering of cancer in a family due to inherited gene changes (mutations), which can be passed from parent to child

About Hereditary Cancer

Many people have a family history of cancer, but only 5-10% of cancer is hereditary.

People who have these gene mutations are born with them - they do not develop over time.

Learning if you have an inherited mutation can help you know more about your cancer risks.

People with a higher chance of developing cancer may need screening, like mammograms, that start at younger ages, and occur more often.

Traditionally, many inherited conditions such as cancer, were treated with a ‘one-size-fits-all’ approach. But through our innovative genetic testing and on-going research we now know that patient outcomes and quality life are dramatically improved with a more personalized approach.
