Genetics Evaluation Referral Form

 

Women's Genetic Counseling at the Women's Medicine Collaborative offers comprehensive evaluation for individuals and family members at risk of hereditary cancer syndromes.

A genetics evaluation can help an individual determine whether she has inherited an increased risk for cancer.  Approximately 5 to 10 percent of all cancers are hereditary.

Women should consider a genetics evaluation if they meet any of the following criteria:

  • Personal history of cancer, such as breast or colon cancer, under the age of 50
  • Two or more first-degree relatives on the same side of the family who have been diagnosed with cancer
  • More than one primary cancer (such as two primary breast cancers, or primary colon cancer and primary stomach cancer)
  • More than one type of cancer
  • A rare type of cancer
  • Triple negative breast cancer before age 60
  • A known genetic mutation in a cancer susceptibility gene in the family
  • Ashkenazi Jewish descent (Eastern European Jewish)
