Genetic testing for cancer is a way to assess your genetic risk and motivate you to start taking steps to reduce your risk of developing several cancers including:

  • Breast/Ovarian Cancer
  • Colon and Uterine Cancer
  • Polyposis (multiple polyps) syndromes
  • Prostate Cancer
  • Many more genetic tests related to rare cancers

Through genetic testing for cancer, you can understand how your family history of cancer may predispose you and your relatives to developing certain types of cancer. By understanding your risk, you can take action that will potentially prevent cancer or detect it at its earliest stage when it is most treatable.

Our experienced genetic counselor can help you determine your potential risk for developing certain types of cancer. Following a comprehensive review of your family history, the genetic counselor will recommend which genetic testing will be most useful in further evaluating your risk. She will also work with you to develop a plan to manage your risk.
