Mary Bird Perkins – Our Lady of the Lake Cancer Center provides genetic counseling and testing services for people who have an increased risk for hereditary cancer. Based on your risk assessment, we can assist you in making informed medical decisions.
Genetic counseling involves discussing your personal and family history of cancer. The goal is to provide clear and clinically relevant information about genetic risk factors in a supportive and educational atmosphere.
Genetic testing allows us to examine specific genes known to increase the risk of developing certain types of cancer, which is key in the early detection of cancers in high-risk patients.
For more information about genetic counseling and testing or for a referral, please call (225) 765-8988.
