Did you know?

Breast. Ovarian. Endometrial. Prostate. Colon. Pancreatic. Kidney: 
These are a few of the cancers with a hereditary component.

Cancers can be inherited from both the mother’s and father’s side of the family.
Fathers can pass along the gene for breast cancer to their daughters.
That’s why it is so important to gather as much family history as possible.

If any of the above cancers or others have appeared in your 
family history, you may want to consider genetic testing.
Genetic testing can help you determine if you are at increased risk of developing certain types of cancer.
