About 5-10% of cancers are hereditary and due to mutations in our DNA that we’re born with. You can meet with a Cancer Genetic Counselor to discuss your personal and/or family history of cancer, learn more about genetic testing for cancer predisposition, and pursue testing to determine your cancer risk and create a personalized cancer screening plan. If you are looking for more information about what genetic counseling is or insurance coverage for genetic testing, click here.
You are eligible for genetic counseling if you have a personal and/or family history of any of the following:
You can call 513 853 4363 and ask for a cancer genetic counseling appointment. A referral is not required in order to schedule a genetic counseling appointment.
Healthcare providers can place a referral in EPIC using "AMB REFERRAL TO GENETIC ONCOLOGY [REF1114]” or fax a referral form to our office.
To prepare for your appointment, consider collecting your medical and family history to discuss with your genetic counselor. If you are unable to acquire this information, you are still able to meet with your genetic counselor. Some examples of medical and family history are provided below.
If you have a hereditary cancer syndrome caused by a gene mutation (such as a BRCA1/2 mutation or Lynch Syndrome), you can be seen in our Hereditary Multidisciplinary Clinic.
During a visit, you will meet with multiple cancer specialists at one visit to discuss your cancer risk based on the gene mutation, review risk-reducing recommendations, and schedule screenings.
