Cancer Risk Evaluation Program

The Cancer Institute of Doylestown Hospital collaborates with Penn’s Abramson Cancer Center to offer the Cancer Risk Evaluation Program (CREP) for breast, ovarian and gastrointestinal (GI) cancers including colon cancer. CREP addresses concerns of patients who may be at risk for hereditary cancers and provides early detection and prevention strategies for at-risk family members.
