Genetic Counseling

We understand the concerns that a diagnosis of cancer creates for related family members. At  MedStar Union Memorial, we provide comprehensive pre- and post-test genetic counseling to patients and family members seeking information and support concerning their personal and/or family history of any type of cancer.

Our certified genetic counselor, a specialist in genetically inherited cancers, works closely with patients and their families to assess their risk of developing cancer. Individuals identified as high-risk are provided with recommendations on ways to reduce their risk, which may include lifestyle changes, increased screenings or medical and surgical options.
