Knowing your risk profile for the following diseases will allow you to
take control of your health and provide you with the best defense against
developing these conditions. These free risk assessments take just five
to seven minutes to complete. Once you complete the assessment, you will
receive personalized, confidential information that can help you take
preventive steps toward preventing illness.
Alcohol Use Assessment
Most adults who drink alcohol are moderate drinkers. They are at low risk
for having a dependence on alcohol. If you are worried about your drinking,
however, this tool will help you find out if you have a problem with alcohol.
Breast Cancer Risk Assessment
Breast cancer is the most commonly diagnosed cancer in women (other than
skin cancer). The American Cancer Society reports the breast cancer death
rate is declining, probably due to earlier detection and improved treatment.
Colorectal Cancer Risk Assessment
Cancer of the colon or rectum (colorectal cancer) usually develops slowly,
over several years. Excluding skin cancers, colorectal cancer is the third
most common cancer in both men and women in the United States and the
second leading cause of cancer-related deaths, according to the American
Cancer Society (ACS). Still, the death rate from colorectal cancer has
been dropping for the last 15 years because of better detection and treatment.
Depression Risk Assessment
More than 20 million people in the United States suffer from depression.
About twice as many women as men suffer from this medical condition. The
following questionnaire can help you assess your risk for depression.
Osteoporosis Risk Assessment for Women
Osteoporosis is a chronic disease that slowly weakens bones until they
break easily. It is caused by a combination of genetic and lifestyle factors
and, in some cases, by medical conditions or medications.
Type 2 Diabetes Risk Assessment
The questions in this assessment ask about risk factors—conditions
that may put you at risk for developing type 2 diabetes. The American
Diabetes Association (ADA) states that the more risk factors you have,
the more likely you are to develop diabetes.
Understanding Your Response to Stress
Any change in your life can lead to stress. This includes even pleasurable
activities, such as vacations or new forms of recreation. You can also
be in a stressful situation such as a difficult job or a long-term illness
of a spouse. If you think you might be experiencing stress, this assessment
may help you identify its effects on you.
