If your patients have an elevated risk for pancreatic cancer due to their family's genetic history, we can provide the proper clinical and genetic evaluation, education, care and support through our Pancreatic Cancer Familial Risk Assessment Program, part of Baylor Charles A. Sammons Cancer Center at Dallas.
The program can help assess your patient's level of risk for developing pancreatic cancer and help determine his or her risk to other family members.
Eligible patients include those with:
- A personal history of pancreas cancer diagnosed at a young age
- Two or more blood relatives with pancreas cancer – at least one first-degree relative
- Peutz-Jeghers syndrome
- Hereditary pancreatitis
- BRCA 1 & 2 mutations with a family history of pancreas cancer
- PALB2 mutation
- Li-Fraumeni syndrome (p53 mutation)
- Lynch Syndrome with a family history of pancreas cancer
- Familial Atypical Multiple Mole and Melanoma syndrome (p16 mutation)
