The purpose of risk assessment is to identify individuals at elevated cancer risk who may benefit from genetic testing, additional screening and preventive measures. We offer high-end tools and techniques to evaluate your risk for different types and stages of cancer. Our cancer specialists provide personalised assessments to identify your unique risk factors.
Cancer is one of the most prevalent diseases in India. It is important to understand your risk for the disease in order to practice preventive measures.
