Breast Cancer Health Risk Assessment

Breast cancer affects women from all different walks of life. About one in eight develops invasive breast cancer over the course of her lifetime. Risk rises after age 35 and is linked to many factors including but not limited to diet, obesity, smoking, genetics, hormones, and lack of exercise. While the exact cause of breast cancer has not been found, we do know that it is treatable and can often be cured when detected early.

Lung Cancer Screening Risk Assessment

Lung cancer often takes several years to develop and is rare in people under 45 years of age. However, lung cancer is the most common cause of cancer-related death for men and women, outnumbering colon, breast and prostate cancers combined. If you are over the age of 55 and are an active or former smoker, you may be eligible for a lung cancer screening— covered by most insurance plans under the Affordable Care Act (ACA). Even if you feel fine, lung screenings are important because symptoms don’t appear until the cancer has spread and is often too late to treat. Early detection could save your life or the life of a loved one. Click here to see if you’re eligible.

 

Prostate Cancer Health Risk Assessment

Prostate cancer—the second leading cause of cancer death in men in the United States—affects men from all different walks of life. Though rare in men younger than 40, risk of prostate cancer rises quickly after age 50. Many of the risk factors for prostate cancer, such as your age, race and family history can’t be controlled. But there are some things you can do that might lower your risk of prostate cancer. Click here to take our quick online assessment and learn about your personal risk factors.

Gynecologic Cancer Health Risk Assessment

Five main types of cancer affect a woman’s reproductive organs: cervical, ovarian, uterine, vaginal, and vulvar. As a group, they are referred to as gynecologic cancers. Each gynecologic cancer is unique and possesses different signs, symptoms and risk factors. All women have some risk, which increases with age. Because there is no simple and reliable way to screen for gynecologic cancers (with the exception of the Pap test for cervical cancer) it is important to recognize warning signs and learn if there are actions you can take to reduce your risk. Click here to take our quick online assessment and learn about your personal risk factors.
