How is Cancer Genetic? A discussion on Hereditary Cancer Syndromes
Genetic testing and its results can substantially impact the care of cancer survivors, even long after their initial oncologic treatments. These results can also lead to testing and changes in care for their relatives. We welcome Jess Cary, our very own Genetic Counselor at New England Cancer Specialists to come talk with us about how cancer can be genetic, and what that means for you and your family.
