About 2 million Americans are at increased risk for cancer and heart disease due to one of three conditions: hereditary breast and ovarian cancer; hereditary colorectal and other cancers related to Lynch syndrome; and familial hypercholesterolemia. These conditions are often not identified by healthcare providers, so many people at risk do not benefit from available evidence-based interventions. State and local public health programs can help healthcare providers identify people at risk by enhancing early detection and referral to appropriate follow up.
