Genetic Counseling & Testing

Although most breast cancers occur in women who do not have a strong family history of the disease, about 10% are linked to a genetic predisposition for the disease.

Genetic counseling can help women explore their family histories and understand the impact genetics may have on their cancer risks. Depending on their personal or family history, some women may decide to have specific genes studied.

Genetic testing information may help a woman learn whether or not she has an increased likelihood of developing certain cancers or whether inherited factors have contributed to her family’s history of cancer.

Genetic counseling and testing are also available for men.
