Inherited Cancer Genetics Section
Although most cancers are not “inherited” some families are particularly susceptible to cancer and may benefit from the predictive value of molecular genetic testing.
The GDL offers a range of tests for example in the areas of early onset breast/ovarian cancer and bowel cancer. This helps patients and their families to understand genetic contributions to cancer and opens up the possibility of pre-symptomatic predictive testing.
