Your Visit

A consultation with the Cancer Risk Assessment Service includes:

  1. A detailed analysis and evaluation of the family medical history
  2. A discussion of the genetics of cancer development and specific hereditary cancer syndromes
  3. An assessment of the patient’s cancer risk based on family and/or personal history of cancer
  4. Recommendations for screening, prevention, and detection.

If a hereditary cancer syndrome is suspected in a family, counselors discuss the availability of genetic testing, and the risks and benefits of such testing.

A letter summarizing the details of the consultation and recommendations is sent to the patients for their records. A copy of the consultation note will also be sent to the patient's physician(s), at their request.
