Cancer Genetic Counseling and Screening

If you have a family history of cancer or have previously been diagnosed, you may be concerned about your future risk. At Carol G. Simon Cancer Center at Morristown Medical Center and Overlook Medical Center, we can help assess your cancer risk through personalized consultations with a certified genetic counselor in a private and confidential setting.

Our oncology genetic counseling services can help you learn:

  • The role family history plays in cancer risk
  • Your personal cancer risk
  • Whether genetic testing is appropriate for you
  • Medical options that can help manage cancer risk
  • Appropriate medical strategies for your needs
  • The implications of genetic testing for you or family members
  • How specific federal and state laws can protect you from genetic discrimination
  • If you or your family are eligible for various research studies that hope to find new genes that may be linked to hereditary cancer

We offer common cancer genetic tests, including but not limited to:

  • Breast and ovarian cancer – BRCA1/2
  • Hereditary non-polyposis colorectal cancer – HNPCC
  • Familial adenomous polyposis – FAP
  • Microsatellite instability – MSI
  • MYH testing
  • P53 gene testing
  • Li-Fraumeni syndrome
  • Peutz-Jeghers syndrome

Our program is ideal for:

  • People diagnosed with cancer at a young age, usually before the age of 50
  • Individuals in the same family diagnosed with the same type of cancer or related cancers (such as breast and ovarian cancers, or colon and uterine cancers)
  • Families with at least two generations affected by cancer or pre-cancerous lesions
  • Families including several individuals with less common types of cancer (such as pancreatic cancer or ovarian cancer)
  • Individuals who have had several different types of cancer

Talk to your health care provider about whether genetic counseling is appropriate for you, or contact us for more information. Most insurance companies will cover the cost of genetic testing when it is medically indicated.
