        Take-Away Points of the Presentation

        1. Despite the use of colon cancer screening, colon cancer remains the 2nd most common cause of cancer related deaths in the US.

        2. The incidence of colorectal cancer is steadily increasing in patients under 50.

        3. Recent advances in next-generation sequencing have led to the commercial availability and increasing use of multigene panel testing.

        4. Novel risk-reducing management and therapeutic strategies exist making it imperative that clinicians be vigilant about evaluating patients for hereditary cancer syndromes.
