Heriditary Cancers

Hereditary Cancer Clinic And Genetic Counseling:

Cancer is a common disease, so it’s no surprise that many families have at least a few members who have had cancer. Sometimes (Only about 5% to 10% of all cancers), certain types of cancer seem to run in some families, caused by an abnormal gene that is being passed along from generation to generation. People with a strong family history of cancer may want to learn their genetic makeup. This may help the person or other family members plan their health care for the future.

Risk Assessment:

We identify Individuals at Risk for cancer, if they have a personal and/or family history or clinical characteristics with features suggestive of hereditary cancer as below:

  • Cancer occurring at an young age (e.g., postmenopausal breast cancer).
  • More than one type of cancer in a single individual (e.g., colorectal and endometrial cancer)
  • Bilateral cancer in paired organs or multifocal disease (e.g., bilateral breast cancer or multifocal renal cancer).
  • Many cases of the same type of cancer in close relatives (e.g., mother, daughter, and sisters with breast cancer).
  • Cancers occurring in many generations of a family (like in a grandfather, father, and son)
  • Occurrence of rare tumors (e.g., retinoblastoma, adrenocortical carcinoma, granulosa cell tumor of the ovary, ocular melanoma, or duodenal cancer).
  • Occurrence of epithelial ovarian, Fallopian tube, or primary peritoneal cancer.
  • Cancer occurring in the sex not usually affected (e.g., male breast cancer).
  • Uncommon tumor histology (e.g., medullary thyroid carcinoma).
  • Are cancers associated with birth defects (e.g., Wilms tumor and genitourinary

Genetic Counseling:
Based on your family history, we will provide you with information regarding :

  • Your chance of having a genetic mutation (or abnormal gene)
  • An estimate of your cancer risks
  • Which genetic testing you may require
  • Cancer screening and prevention recommendations based on the result
  • Options for reproductive planning based on genetic testing
Genetic testing:

This may help to accurately

  • Predict your risk of a particular cancer
  • Find if you have genes that may pass increased cancer risk to your children
  • Provide information to guide your health care

No genetic test can say if you will develop cancer for sure. But it can tell you if you have a higher risk than most people. Only some people with a gene mutation will develop cancer. This simply involves having blood drawn or saliva sample.

The best person to test first is usually the person with cancer. “After we identify the mutation that caused cancer to occur, we can test first-degree relatives — mother, sisters, daughters — to see if they also carry it,”

Types of genetic tests we offer:
  • A multi-gene panel: Utilises next generation sequencing technology to identify many genes at one time.   Pan-tumour’ approach, or applicable for use across any type of cancer
  • Site-specific testing: If a family member had genetic testing that identified a specific mutation

Genetic tests are available for some types of cancer. These include:

  1. Breast cancer
  2. Ovarian cancer
  3. Colon cancer
  4. Thyroid cancer
  5. Prostate cancer
  6. Pancreatic cancer

7.Melanoma

8.Sarcoma

9.Kidney cancer

10.Stomach cancer
