Cancer Prevention and Hereditary Risk

Helping you understand your potential risk for developing cancer

Whether you and your family have been touched by cancer - or you are interested in reducing your risk for developing cancer, we offer Hereditary Cancer Risk Assessment. The assessment is available whether or not you have a family history of cancer.

What will I learn from the Hereditary Cancer Risk Assessment?

The assessment will provide information on your risk of developing certain cancers. Regardless of background, you will learn:

  • The steps you can take to reduce your cancer risk
  • How you can prevent the onset of cancer
  • How to detect cancer early, when treatment is most effective

How can I receive the Hereditary Cancer Risk Assessment?

If you are interested in receiving a free risk assessment, print and complete the Family Cancer History Questionnaire and call us for an appointment at 402-354-5276.

You will meet with team members, including a board-certified, licensed genetic counselor, of the Cancer Prevention & Hereditary Risk Program. They will explain your results and discuss options available to you, including emotional support services.

All Methodist Health System patients have access to Methodist Estabrook Cancer Center's Cancer Prevention & Hereditary Cancer Risk Program, regardless of where they receive treatment.

There is no fee for the risk assessment and initial consultation.

Methodist Estabrook Cancer Center's cancer prevention programs are responsible for some of the most enlightening cancer research currently being performed.
