Description   Some families carry a genetic alteration that moderately or greatly increases the likelihood of developing one or more cancers. In these families, the genetic alteration is passed down through the generations resulting in higher than average rates of cancer in the family. Join Susan Meisfeldt, MD, Medical Oncologist and Heather Sylvester, MS, Cancer Genetics Counselor from Maine Medical Center's Risk and Prevention Clinic (CRPC) and learn more about cancer risk assessment, reduction and prevention.
