Cancer Risk Assessment
Physician Prescription Required: No
If you are concerned about your risk to develop cancer based on your family history, a Cancer Risk Assessment and Genetic Counseling session may be helpful to you. The majority of cancers occur by chance, however, about 5-10% of all cancer cases are hereditary or "run in the family." In some cases, genetic counseling and testing can identify those individuals who are at increased risk to develop cancer. Ask your doctor, or ask one of ours. You can find one with DocFinder or call The Englewood-Mount Sinai Cancer Risk Assessment and Counseling Program at (201) 894-3690.
