Genes are pieces of DNA which are passed down through generations.  Some families may be at risk if they have genes containing a mutation increasing their risk of cancers. With genetic assessment and counseling, a better understanding of mutations and genes can be obtained to help you and your family gain more information about cancer care and risk reduction.
