Get ahead of the battle. Understand your cancer risks.

Welcome...

Welcome to Family Cancer Risk Services (FCRS) of Saint Thomas Health. We are excited to tell you about recent advances that offer new opportunities to reduce cancer risk. At FCRS, we provide risk assessment and offer genetic testing to identify inherited gene changes, called mutations, that significantly increase risk for certain types of cancer. An estimated five to 10 percent of several types of cancers are due to inheritance of specific genetic mutations. Please browse our site to find out how we can help improve your understanding of cancer risks and the available options for genetic testing, cancer surveillance and cancer risk reduction.
