While we hope that no one ever has to endure a cancer diagnosis, we know that there are some people who inherit a genetic predisposition for developing cancer. For these high-risk patients, it’s imperative that they receive counseling to understand their genetic mutation, plus preventive monitoring and extra screenings to ensure early detection, should a cancer diagnosis ever happen.
When genetic testing indicates a person is at an elevated risk for developing cancer, or if their family history puts them at risk, CARTI’s Cancer Genetic and Risk Management Clinic is here to help you get in front of it. Our team of multidisciplinary genetic specialists provide patients with genetic testing, counseling, monitoring and screenings.
WHAT TO EXPECT
- For those who have already received genetic testing, you will meet with our team to discuss preventive measures – including monitoring, medications and screenings – that can improve your outcomes.
- For those who have not yet received genetic testing, you will meet with our team to discuss your risk factors, including cancer-focused family and personal medical history. Based on information discussed, the genetic counselor will be able to determine if the cancer could be hereditary and if you meet guidelines for testing.
