Genetic Testing

At Phoenixville Hospital we have the technology to look closely at a person's DNA for potential genetic problems. The University of Pennsylvania Cancer Risk Evaluation Program provides information about an individual's risk of developing cancer. Genetic testing is offered to people with personal or strong family histories to help determine the likelihood that they will develop cancer. Our program also provides education and counseling on the benefits and limitations of genetic testing to help a person make informed decisions. It's just another way we are here for our community.
