CDC’s Division of Cancer Prevention and Control launched a new mobile app, My Family Health Portrait: Cancer (MFHP: Cancer), that helps individuals collect their family’s history of cancer and learn their risk for breast, ovarian, and colorectal cancers. It also encourages those with increased risk to talk to their health care provider about their risk and ways to manage it.
Please help us share the news about this new CDC resource. Android users can download the app from Google Play and iOS users can download the app from the App Store. CDC’s Family Health History and Cancer web page also provides information about how collecting family health history can help people understand and mitigate their risk for some cancers.
