Cancer Genetics Program

Every year, 1.6 million Americans are diagnosed with cancer. While most cancers are sporadic, some people have a higher risk of cancer because of a hereditary factor. Our program helps identify those individuals and families at an increased risk for cancer and provides strategies to reduce risk and prevent cancer in the family. This program includes a personalized risk assessment and management recommendations to promote cancer prevention. For more information, or to schedule an appointment call: (516) 325-7533.
