Genetic testing can help estimate a person’s chance of developing cancer in their lifetime based on changes, or mutations, in their genetic code. Genetic counselors are specially trained medical professionals who can assess and advise people on their individual risk of cancer based on their family’s history of cancer and the results of genetic testing. In this podcast, Tiffani DeMarco explains the role of a genetic counselor and discusses how genetic testing has changed over time.
