Welcome to Fox Chase Cancer Center Risk Assessment Program
Risk Assessment at Fox Chase Cancer Center
- What is Risk Assessment?
Your family history can play a part in your cancer risk. Learn about inherited genetic factors, and what you can do about your hereditary risk of cancer.
These risk factors, when present, could increase an individual's chance of developing cancer. An important fact to remember when reading information about risk factors is that having certain risk factors does not mean that cancer will develop. Knowing your cancer risk gives you a chance at risk reduction.
