Genetic testing can reveal risk of hereditary cancers

More from this show

Up to 10 percent of cancer cases are caused by an inherited genetic mutation. Genetic counseling may be recommended for families with a pattern of certain cancers or cancer among young family members to see if the cancer is hereditary. Dr. Mike Janicek, a gynecologic oncologist with Arizona Oncology, will talk about the importance of knowing your familiar history and who should be tested.
