Genetic Counseling and Screening for Inherited Cancer Syndromes

Call for an Appointment 919-684-3181

You may be referred for or request genetic counseling or screening if you are at high risk for developing cancer. You may be at high risk if you have a family history of cancer, or you were diagnosed with cancer at a young age and your doctor is concerned that a genetic mutation may be present.

Our certified genetic counselors work closely with you to understand how your family history of cancer impacts your risk. They also assist with the genetic testing process. When the results come back, we may recommend providers during post-test counseling. This ensures that you are followed regularly and undergo appropriate screenings to detect cancer at its earliest stage.
