Inherited cancer syndrome is a disorder where changes in genes passed from a parent to child can cause an increased risk of cancer. Genetic testing is a way to learn if you have mutations associated with risk for cancer.
Check out the video below about inherited cancer syndromes, genetic testing and genetic counselors to show the role genetics play in gynecologic cancers. The video was released by The Foundation for Women’s Cancer and the Society of Gynecologic Oncology and made possible by an independent educational grant from Myriad Genetics, Inc.
