This service is offered to all individuals who has a personal and/or family history suggestive of an inherited cancer syndrome. If you have had cancer at a young age and/or have several family members who have been affected by cancer, you may be at risk of carrying a cancer-causing genetic variant. This service entails an initial counselling session during which detailed personal and family history information is gathered. If this is suggestive of a genetic cancer syndrome, the available genetic testing options, as well as the benefits and limitations of each, will be discussed. If genetic testing is requested, a follow-up counselling session will be scheduled to discuss these results. This service also entails a personalised cancer risk assessment based on lifestyle and familial factors, including the genetic test results (if applicable).
