My Family Health Portrait Algorithms

The following are the algorithms used for family health history risk assessment in the My Family Health Portrait (MFHP) web-based tool and the MFHP: Cancer app, available for iOS and Android. The hereditary breast and ovarian cancer, colorectal cancer, and heart disease algorithms assess risk based only on family health history and do not account for other factors that affect risk, such as age, body mass index, eating habits, physical activity, smoking, and alcohol use.
