Cancer Genetics

Genetic counsellor with client


We offer assessment and counselling for individuals and families who are at an increased risk of hereditary cancer syndromes.

Families with hereditary cancer syndromes generally have the following:

  • Same or related cancers occurring in several generations
  • Three or more relatives affected
  • Onset before 50 years of age
  • Individuals with multiple primary cancers 

If you are unsure as to whether your family is at an increased risk of a hereditary cancer syndrome, please speak with your health care provider and he/she will advise you on whether a referral to the Genetics Program is appropriate.
