Genetic Counseling & Testing

Genetic Counseling & Testing at The Herman & Walter Samuelson Breast Care Center at Northwest Hospital

A counseling session with a trained genetic counselor is available for people who have a strong family history of breast cancer. A genetic screening test analyzes a person's DNA to look for genetic alterations that may indicate an increased risk for developing certain cancers. Patients who know they are at increased risk for breast cancer can start cancer screenings earlier and have them done more frequently than what is recommended for someone at average risk.
