Hereditary Cancer Clinic

Hereditary Cancer Clinic

Genetic counseling and testing at the Swedish Cancer Institute’s Hereditary Cancer Clinic are located within the True Family Women's Cancer Center. Genetic counseling and testing can help determine your risk and your family members' risks for developing hereditary cancers including (but not limited to) breast, ovarian and colon cancers. Patients and family members meet with a board-certified genetic counselor who will review medical and family histories to determine which genetic tests are appropriate, as well as the risks, advantages and costs of genetic testing for hereditary cancers.
