Genetic counseling and testing can tell you how and why an illness like cancer can be passed down in a family. It also can help your doctors figure out how to treat or prevent cancer better. Only you can decide if genetic testing is right for you. Here are some things you should know about genetic testing.
If you still have questions or just want to discuss genetic testing, please talk to your doctor about your concerns. You can also request a meeting with a genetic counselor at Grady’s Cancer Center by calling (404) 489-9000.
