Who to Test

Consistent consideration of cancer family history and genetic test status will dramatically change your medical management recommendations for all patient types. There are two essential steps to identify your patients for Hereditary Cancer Risk in order to optimize your medical management:

Screen and Evaluate.


Cancer family history questionnaire

Ask each patient to fill one out to capture 3 degrees of cancer history for both maternal and paternal family members. Emphasizing to your patients the importance of capturing a thorough family history will allow you to better evaluate their hereditary cancer risk and appropriateness for testing.


Review your patient's Cancer Family History using consistent red flags to determine if your patient is at increased risk for hereditary cancers.
