You may be at risk for GI cancer if you have a personal or family history of colon polyps, colon cancer or other gastrointestinal cancers (pancreatic, stomach, esophageal or liver). If you are concerned about the risk of gastrointestinal (GI) cancer, you may want to consider genetic screening. 

Our Gastrointestinal Genetics and Cancer Risk Evaluation Program at Penn's Abramson Cancer Center offers patients who are at an increased risk of developing gastrointestinal cancer access to advanced genetic testing, information, evaluation and clinical services. Our team of GI cancer experts work together across multiple specialties and offer support to patients through each step of the risk evaluation program.
