Genetic counseling assesses your overall cancer risk. The process includes reviewing the pattern and ages of cancer diagnosis in your family and discussing whether those results suggest an inherited predisposition to cancer.

Aurora Hereditary Cancer Prevention and Management Center (HCPMC)
Has genetic counseling and testing determined that you or your family members have a hereditary cancer syndrome? Families with hereditary cancer syndromes are at high risk for multiple types of cancer. Even families whose genetic testing results are normal may be at increased risk for multiple cancers if they have complex cancer histories.
If your family history of cancer has been determined to be hereditary, or if your complex family history can’t be explained by genetic testing, you deserve comprehensive care from a multidisciplinary team of experts in a single, convenient location.
The Aurora Hereditary Cancer Prevention and Management Center (HCPMC) specializes in testing and monitoring individuals and families with complex or difficult hereditary cancer conditions.
Through the HCPMC, you can:
