Genetics and Cancer Risk

Through our Hereditary Cancer Program, board-certified genetic counselors help you assess, understand and reduce your risk of developing certain types of genetically influenced cancers. Designed for individuals who have a family history of specific cancers, genetic screening is used to detect cancer-causing gene mutations, while our certified genetic counselors help explain the results and treatment options. They also provide referral to testing services when appropriate.
