Cancer Genetic Counseling

Many factors affect your probability of developing cancer, but our genetic counselors can assess your risk of inherited cancer. While most cancers are not hereditary, breast, ovarian, colon, uterine, prostate and some others can be. Genetic assessment and testing is helpful so you and your family can understand the role genetics plays in your risk of developing cancer and consider options to minimize risk.

Cancer-related genetic counseling can:

  • Determine if there is an increased risk
  • Assess the probability of developing cancer
  • Offer options for treatment, prevention and risk reduction
  • Help patients of all ages

Our genetic counselors can give you personalized information and care when it comes to your overall concerns about cancer and genetic health, especially if you have:

  • A family history of cancer
  • Immediate relatives (parents, children, sisters or brothers) with cancer
  • Extended family members on the same side of the family that have related cancers
  • Concerns about your risks of developing cancer
  • Been diagnosed with early onset, rare, or multiple types of cancer
  • A genetic syndrome or a known genetic mutation that predispose you to an increased risk of developing cancer
