A person should consult with a genetic counselor if there are questions about his/her genetic health related to pregnancy, cancer, or other conditions.
Here are examples of people who may benefit from genetic counseling:
A genetic counselor will take a thorough medical and family history, will assess risks for genetic diseases, and will offer options for appropriate testing. When the results of testing are available, the genetic counselor will review them and will help people think through decisions related to their genetic risks.
