Colon Cancer Risk Assessment Clinic

Gastroenterologist Zachariah Foda provides an overview of the Johns Hopkins Colon Cancer Risk Assessment Clinic, which offers a specialized visit with a gastroenterologist and a genetic counselor for patients who have a strong family history of colon cancer or a personal or family history of hereditary syndromes such as Lynch syndrome, or who have had more than 10 polyps. Foda explains what happens during a visit to the clinic, and how the team determines a patient’s risk level and how it serves as an adjunct to the patient’s existing health care team.
