My notebook

Good communication between you and the genetic counselor is very important for cancer risk assessment. You'll get a lot of information during your appointment. You'll learn about cancer risk, family history, genetic testing and health behaviors that can increase or decrease your cancer risk. Some of the information may be complex.

During your appointment:

  • Remember to take notes
  • Let your team know about any worries or concerns you may have
  • Ask questions

It is important to plan ahead for your first appointment.
