Disease Risk Index cannot predict if you will get a particular disease. It estimates your chances and offers personalized tips for reducing your risk. But just because you follow the tips does not guarantee you will be healthy. Your health is the result of many factors, some of which are not yet fully understood.

Disease Risk Index is an educational web site created by the Harvard Center for Cancer Prevention for informational purposes only. It does not provide medical advice or services. Do not use the content to make a diagnosis, treat a health problem or replace a doctor's judgement.

Disease Risk Index does not take the place of regular medical check-ups. If you have any concerns about your health, talk to a doctor. Do not disregard or delay seeking medical advice because of something you read on this web site.
