Genetic evaluation has become a key component in the early detection, diagnosis and treatment of many types of cancer. About 5% to 10% of all cancers are thought to be strongly related to an inherited gene mutation. Individuals with a personal and/or family history of cancer, or clinical characteristics suggestive of hereditary cancer are candidates for an oncogenetic consultation and cancer risk assessment.
