Health Services
Albert Embankment, MacMillan Cancer Relief, Camelford House, 89, London, SE1 7UQ
Telephone number:
0808 808 00 00
Service description:
At a genetic consultation, you can discuss your situation with someone trained in genetics. They will listen to your concerns and advise you on your risk of developing cancer. Your family history will be very important in working out your risk. Your genetic counsellor will ask about your family members’ experience of cancer and other health conditions. The more information you have about your family history to share at the consultation, the more you will get out of it.

Your genetic consultant or counsellor will then talk to you about managing your risk of cancer. This may include the options of screening or genetic testing. You don’t have to make any decisions straight away and they can help you think these choices through. Most counsellors send you a letter about what was covered in the meeting.
Age range:
0 - 0
