I just want to get some advice about the genetics of cancer.

At Sydney Cancer Genetics, we see people who are concerned about inherited cancer risk.  This is true whether the person has had a cancer themselves or not.

Discussing your family history and your concerns with a genetic oncologist often provides reassurance.  This is because most cancer is NOT caused by a inherited mutation in an important gene.

We provide personalised advice regarding cancer screening and risk management.  If  a genetic test may help, we can discuss the benefits and limitations.
