Session: Beyond Breast and Ovarian Cancer: Cancer Risks and Options for Risk Management
Speaker: Theodora Ross, MD, PhD and Leigha Senter-Jamieson, MS, CGC
Many gene mutations associated with hereditary breast and ovarian cancer also are risks of other cancers. As panel testing uncovers mutations in genes associated with other cancers, many wonder what type of screening and risk management they should consider. In this session, you will learn the gene mutations that increase risks for other cancers, including melanoma, thyroid, and colon cancer, as well as what types of screening are available to people at average as well as those at increased risk.
