Case Examples for Service Level 1/ Initial Assessment:

THIS SERVICE IS REQUIRED OF ALL NEW CLIENTS AND WILL HELP YOU GET STARTED
 

  • My sister was just diagnosed with breast cancer and was told that the family should look into genetic testing.  What would I learn if I have genetic testing myself, since I have regular mammograms anyway?
  • I was diagnosed with colon cancer at age 40.  I have no information about my family history and I have children.  Can genetic testing help my doctor with treatment information and my family with management information?
  • My brother was recently ´╗┐diagnosed with a clotting condition.  My doctor is concerned that this could be genetic and feels that he needs more information before he recommends that I get tested. 
  • I have several cousins who are mentally retarded.  Can genetic testing help to predict whether I am at risk for children with mental retardation?
