October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month
Genetics Center would like to share their support and warmest regards to all patients and their families affected by breast cancer. We are honored to be able to provide genetic testing such as BRCA1/BRCA2 for hereditary breast and ovarian cancer, and provide expert, as well as compassionate, genetic counseling to help patients and their families understand their risks and treatment options.
According to the American Cancer Society, finding breast cancer early is one of the most important strategies to successful treatment. If you have a personal history of breast cancer, a strong family history of breast cancer, or a known genetic mutation associated with breast cancer, a genetic consultation should be considered to assess your risk and discuss testing.
