Hereditary Cancer Genetic Counselling

Hereditary cancer genetic counselling is an important component of healthcare for individuals who have a personal or family history of certain types of cancer, or who are considering genetic testing as part of their healthcare. It provides individuals with a clear understanding of their genetic risks and the available treatment and prevention options, as well as support and resources to help them cope with the emotional and psychological challenges that may come with genetic testing or a diagnosis of cancer. If you have concerns about your genetic risks for hereditary cancer, talk to your healthcare provider about accessing hereditary cancer genetic counselling.
