Cancer Genetics

The Charlotte and Lewis Steinberg Familial Breast and Ovarian Cancer Clinic provides genetic assessment and counselling for individuals and families at increased risk for inherited breast and/or ovarian cancer.

In our multidisciplinary team setting, we are joined by a family doctor with a special interest in breast and ovarian cancer surveillance and prevention, and a gynecologist. Some patients who are at high risk for inherited breast and ovarian cancer are seen on a regular basis by this multidisciplinary team for surveillance and support. In some cases, genetic testing is available.

Genetic testing is done by our molecular laboratory. Patients at risk for other hereditary cancers, such as colon cancer, are seen in our general genetics clinic.
