Our knowledge of cancer genetics improves every day. But the best screening tool for inherited cancer is still your family history.
The genetic counselors at the Dorcy Cancer Center are experts in cancer family history. We estimate your particular risks for cancer using medical and family history details. We review these histories with you during a 60-90 minute genetic counseling session.
The resulting risk estimates are important because they tell us:
Most of our clients have a lower risk for cancer and inherited predispositions than they think. Learning cancer risk can help you and your relatives have a healthy, long life.
Remember: genetics is important in your cancer risk, but it is not fate. Please contact us for more information about cancer genetic counseling at the Dorcy Cancer Center:
