Includes a thorough review of your medical and family history, as well as a complete physical examination. Your evaluation may also include advanced imaging and diagnostic tests to determine the extent of your condition.
Risk Assessment and Genetic Testing
We test and provide a comprehensive risk assessment for dozens of hereditary cancers, including breast cancer and ovarian cancer (including the BRCA1 and BRCA2 gene mutations), and colon cancer. The genetic testing may involve saliva samples or blood work to look for the presence of genes or genetic mutations that may signal a predisposition to a hereditary cancer.
We work closely with you to help you understand the results of your genetic tests as well as the emotional, psychological, and social implications. We help you plan the appropriate next steps, from a regular screening plan to treatment recommendations that include diagnostic and treatment options, including medical therapy and preventive surgery.
