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.
