Assess Your Hereditary Cancer Risk
At Hereditary Cancer Support, our specialists help you and your family understand your risk level for developing hereditary cancer and options for follow-up care. Regardless of your genetic testing results, we will discuss recommendations for preventative care and cancer screening, offer information about support groups or other educational resources and provide emotional support to you and your family.
1 DETERMINE RISK
Take Our Survey
By answering a few quick questions about your personal and family cancer history, we can determine whether or not you may be at risk for developing a hereditary cancer.

Speak With a Patient Care Coordinator
Our experienced patient care coordinators can answer preliminary questions about genetic testing and insurance coverage. They can also connect you to a doctor or genetic counselor in your area who will further determine if genetic testing is appropriate.
3 GENETIC TESTING
Attend a Consult, Get Tested
At your appointment, your doctor or genetic counselor will assess your hereditary cancer risk and answer any questions you may have about your risk level. During this appointment, the specialist can arrange genetic testing, and let you know what to expect.
4 PLAN NEXT STEPS
Your Results and Next Steps
If your test results indicate that you carry a gene mutation which increases your cancer risk, you and your hereditary cancer specialist will use the results to determine an appropriate medical management plan. The goal of this plan will be to either reduce your cancer risk or to catch it as early as possible.
