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.
Watch the video below in which Emily Kuchinsky, MS, certified genetic counselor with the MedStar Health Cancer Network, talks about who is a good candidate for genetic testing.
