Thinking about cancer or dealing with cancer risk can be scary or overwhelming, but we believe that receiving information and resources is comforting, empowering, and lifesaving.
Our knowledge of hereditary cancer genetics is rapidly advancing, as new information is being discovered at an accelerated pace. Consulting with an expert who is knowledgeable in cancer genetics is the best way to ensure information received is up-to-date and credible.
Some have specific high-risk clinics or programs that are devoted to risk assessment and risk management. In addition to geneticists and genetic counselors, these programs offer access to oncologists trained in management of hereditary cancer risks.
