Cancer genetic counseling

Also known as: Genetic counseling, cancer-related

Working as part of a team of doctors and other health professionals, genetic counselors provide education and support to families with members who have birth defects or genetic disorders such as sickle cell disease, cystic fibrosis or hemophilia. 

Providence Cancer Risk Assessment and Prevention Program provides genetic counseling and genetic testing. People who are most likely to benefit from genetic testing usually have risk factors for hereditary cancer.
