Cancer Genetics and Prevention Program

Ask the Cancer Genetics Team Form

Answers to your questions about cancer genetic counseling, testing, and cancer predisposition syndromes

In Ask the Cancer Genetics Team, our cancer genetics experts will answer questions about genetic factors that increase risk for cancer.

Please be aware that we can respond only to a limited number of questions.

You will receive an on-screen confirmation message after submitting your question. We may also send you an email with referral information if we feel that your question would be better addressed in person through an appointment with a cancer genetics provider.

You may view Ask the Cancer Genetics Team to read some recent questions and answers.

Please note that we cannot give out medical advice over email and Ask the Cancer Genetics Team is not intended to replace the medical advice of your doctor or health care provider. Please consult with your health care provider for advice about a specific medical condition.

If you would like to make an appointment with a cancer genetics provider, please call 617-632-8474.
