Cancer genetic counseling: Learn about your risk factors

Inova’s Cancer Genetics Program serves individuals who are concerned about their personal and/or family history of cancer.

Our board-certified genetic counselors are experts in cancer risk assessment who help patients navigate through complex medical information and the practical and ethical implications of genetic testing.

Patients and families with many different types of cancer, including breast, ovarian and colon cancer, can benefit from genetic counseling, which includes:

  • Comprehensive risk assessment
  • Discussion of possible genetic testing options
  • Review of recommended cancer screening and prevention

Convenient locations to serve you

Inova cancer genetic counseling is conveniently available at four different Northern Virginia locations: Alexandria, Fairfax, Fair Oaks and Loudoun. To schedule an appointment or to learn more, call us
at 571-472-0444.
