A Genetic Counseling/Risk Assessment Appointment

  • A Cancer Risk Assessment assesses your risk of cancer based on your personal and family history of cancer.
  • It can provide you with personalized medical management recommendations for cancer screening
  • Some individuals may meet criteria for genetic testing and wish to proceed with additional testing
  • A genetic counselor is specialized in inherited aspects of cancer. They can discuss the different genetic testing options, the benefits and limitations of genetic testing, possible implications for you and your family, current laws that protect the privacy of genetic test results, and medical management recommendations.
We do not inherit cancer – we can inherit an increased risk for cancer.
