High Risk Cancer Program
The Leon Hess Cancer Center at Monmouth Medical Center offers a High Risk Cancer Assessment Program that is designed to evaluate, educate and closely monitor those at high risk for developing cancer. Created for individuals and families who are concerned about their risk of developing cancer due to their medical and family history, environmental factors and lifestyle choices, its main goal is to educate and provide cancer screening and prevention recommendations for individuals at high risk for developing the disease.
The program helps patients and their families confronting cancer risks to make informed decisions about their health care needs by providing them with appropriate medical and genetic information, social support and resources. As part of the program, a high risk team has been assembled — its members working closely with each patient to develop a personal health plan and to educate them about individual risk factors.
