Genetics and Cancer: What Does it Mean for Me and My Family?
Part of The Ernest Rosenbaum Cancer Survivorship Lecture Series
Many people have relatives with cancer
but when should you be concerned about a genetic cancer risk? Who
might benefit from genetic testing and how is this done? This lecture
covers the basics of inherited cancer risk and the most common cancer
syndromes, presented by Stanford
Cancer Center's genetic counseling staff. You will learn about
genetic tests that are currently available and what the future may
hold for this rapidly evolving science.
