When your Doctor finds Hereditary Cancer to be appropriate, testing will check for 48 genes that are linked to 11 cancers.
Technically all cancers are genetic (our own cells growing out of control), but 10-15% are hereditary, being passed down from generation to generation
**Inheriting a cancer-related genetic change doesn’t mean you will definitely get cancer. It means that your risk of getting cancer is increased.
The Hereditary Cancer Foundation's staff are NOT Medical professionals that provide testing. Here are some of the ways we help.
