Genetic Screening

Genetic Screening at Roswell Park assists individuals at high risk for hereditary cancer syndromes based on their personal or family histories of cancer. Our genetic counselors offer patients and their families a comprehensive, personalized cancer risk evaluation in a caring, confidential setting.

If cancer runs in your family, there may be an inherited factor (a gene change) that increases your risk of developing cancer in your lifetime.

Patients are referred to Genetic Screening by their health care providers or by self-referral.

If you have an appointment already scheduled for genetic consultation, please complete your family history questionnaire prior to your appointment date.

If you wish to see if a consultation is appropriate for you, please call 1-800-ROSWELL.
