Genetics and Risk Assessment Clinic

Located in Peoria, Illinois, the UnityPoint Health Genetics and Risk Assessment Clinic provides counseling, genetic testing and surveillance to help you determine if you are at risk for breast, colon, ovarian or endometrial cancer.

Examine Your Family Tree

When it comes to cancer, it helps to know your family's medical history. Some cancers can be attributed to genetic factors. While there's no certain correlation, genetic factors may contribute in up to 15% of cancer cases. Use My Family Health Portrait to map out your family medical history online.

Check Your Rate of Risk

Our Genetic and Risk Assessment Clinic offers counseling, genetic testing and observation services to help you understand your risk for breast, colon, ovarian and endometrial cancers. Please review the below questions to assess your cancer risk:

  • Personal Medical History: Have you, or a member of your family* been diagnosed with any type of cancer under the age of 50?
  • Mother's Medical History: Was your mother, or a member of their family* diagnosed with any type of cancer under the age of 50?
  • Father's Medical History: Was your father, or a member of their family* diagnosed with any type of cancer under the age of 50?

* Family includes children, parents, siblings, nieces and nephews, aunts and uncles, grandparents and cousins on both sides of the family.

If the answer is yes, please contact our clinic at (309) 672-4202 for a more thorough risk assessment. A counselor will review your family's health history and determine if you would benefit from an appointment. 

For patients who are at an increased risk for developing cancer, a consultation with our cancer care dietitian can be arranged. During this meeting you'll learn the right foods to eat for a cancer-prevention diet. For more information, please call the clinic at (309) 672-4202.
