The oncogenetic consultation

Assessment of the risk of developing cancer

Proposition according to individual risk

This is always an individual decision that can lead to receiving advice, being given strategies to avoid cancer, adapted supervision and even dedicated treatments.

Some situations, for instance, when there are several cases of cancer in the same family, a case of cancer in a very young person, or indeed, certain types of cancer, evoke the possibility of a genetic predisposition to cancer. In these cases, we propose an appointment with Professor Pascal PUJOL (link with team rubric), for an onco-genetic consultation at the Institut de Cancérologie Hartmann. A blood sample will be taken whose analysis will enable the study of those genes that are predisposed to cancer. This initiative is, naturally, completely personal and, at times, can lead to therapeutic strategies, adapted diagnoses and even recommendations to members of your family to have their same genes studied.
