What is genetic counseling?

Unique Hospital Cancer Centre, where we are dedicated to providing high-quality cancer care with US standards at an affordable price. Our goal is to empower and support cancer patients in their journey by offering exceptional services, ongoing research, and innovative treatments.

Genetic counseling is the process of evaluating a person’s risk for inherited genetic conditions that may lead to the development of cancer. It involves a genetic counselor who helps individuals understand their potential risks and provides information and support to make informed decisions about their healthcare.

There are two types of genetic counseling: pre-test counseling and post-test counseling. Pre-test counseling involves discussing your family and personal medical history, risks, and benefits of genetic testing. It helps you understand the implications and limitations of genetic testing. Post-test counseling is done after the genetic test results are available. The genetic counselor interprets the results, answers any questions, and assists in making informed decisions about further medical management.

Genetic counseling is recommended for anyone with a family history of cancer, genetic conditions linked to cancer, or a personal history of cancer. It is also recommended for individuals who are interested in learning about their genetic risk for cancer. Genetic counseling can be done at any time, regardless of whether you have been diagnosed with cancer or not.

At Unique Hospital Cancer Centre, we have a team of experienced genetic counselors who work closely with our renowned medical oncologist, Dr. Ashish Gupta. Our counselors have extensive knowledge and experience in all aspects of genetics and cancer. They can effectively assess your risk and provide you with appropriate guidance and support. Moreover, we offer state-of-the-art genetic testing and interpretation, along with access to clinical trials and innovative treatments based on your unique genetic makeup.

The duration of genetic counseling varies depending on the complexity of your case. It can range from a one-time consultation to a series of sessions over several weeks. Our team at Unique Hospital Cancer Centre will ensure that we take the necessary time to address all your concerns and provide you with the support you need.
