The Cancer Genetics Clinic

Genetic testing in patients who currently have cancer or have had cancer in the past can help to direct treatment, clarify future cancer risks and provide other family members with information about their cancer risk.

If a faulty gene known to cause an increased risk of cancer is identified in a family, genetic testing can be offered to unaffected family members. This allows relatives to clarify their cancer risks and take screening and surgical options to reduce their cancer risk and promote early diagnosis.
