Approximately 5% to 10% of all cancers develop because a person inherited a genetic mutation in a way that encourages the disease to grow. Individuals with these genetic mutations are far more likely to develop certain cancers, often at a much earlier age than the general population.

Medical management of people with a higher cancer risk (ie, hereditary risk) can be very different from that for people with a lower cancer risk (ie, general population risk).
You and your healthcare provider can determine your cancer risk and course of management by understanding your family history and pursuing hereditary cancer testing when appropriate.
