GENETIC COUNSELING TO DETERMINE HIGH RISK INHERITANCE
Inheritable genes and/or familial history may increase the risk of several gynecologic cancers. Most well known is the association between ovarian cancer and mutations in genes BRCA1 and BRCA2, which also increase the risk for breast and prostate cancer.
An association between the gene mutation known as hereditary non-polyposis colon cancer, (HNPCC, sometimes called Lynch syndrome) and uterine (endometrial) cancer has also been identified.
We encourage you to talk with Rocky Mountain Cancer Centers’ team of genetic counselors to learn more about testing and counseling available. Go here to learn about Genetic Counseling & Testing
