Over the past several years, inherited factors, or genes,
have been identified that can contribute to the development of some
forms of breast, ovarian, colorectal, and other types of cancer.
Huntington Hospital offers hereditary cancer risk assessment and genetic
counseling by specially trained genetic counselors and physicians to
people who are concerned about their personal and/or family history of
cancer. This information may be helpful when making medical decisions
about how to manage your risk for cancer.
