What is a Genetic Counselor?
A genetic counselor is a healthcare professional with special training in medical genetics and counseling. They look at your family health history, provide risk assessment, give recommendations related to genetic testing, explain the implications of test results for different family members, and support you in the decisions you make.
Why would I need to see a Genetic Counselor?
If you have a personal or family history of cancer or any other hereditary disease, a genetic counselor can help you understand your risks as well as how DNA testing may or may not be helpful for you. If you have already had genetic testing done, a genetic counselor can assist you in interpreting your results within the context of your personal and family health history.
