Society of Gynecologic Oncologists Provides Guidelines for Offering Genetic Risk Assessment to Women With a Personal or Family History of Breast, Ovarian, Uterine or Colorectal Cancer

who may benefit from a hereditary cancer risk assessment," says Dr. Noah Kauff, Gynecologist and Cancer Geneticist at Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center in New York. "There has been a significant interest in genetic risk assessment in both the medial and lay communities, but clear-cut criteria detailing who to assess for hereditary gynecologic cancer risk have been lacking. These guidelines are an important step forward in assisting physicians' ability to make informed recommendations regarding who should undergo genetic risk assessment."

"This is all about risk-reduction," adds Dr. Andrew Berchuck, SGO's President and the Director of Duke University Medical Center's Division of Gynecologic Oncology. "The women with these hereditary cancer syndromes have a tremendously increased risk of developing breast, ovarian, colorectal or endometrial cancer. By identifying their risks early on, we can determine the best possible course of action to reduce their risks through proven screening and prevention strategies -- altering the natural history of these inherited syndromes and their effects on our patients' health."

Hereditary cancer risk assessment is a process conducted by a physician, genetic counselor or other provider with expertise in cancer genetics. It includes assessment of risk, education and counseling. Genetic testing may also be included if so desired by the patient after appropriate counseling and informed consent.

Physicians are encouraged to read an advance publication of the Statement on Risk Assessment for Inherited Gynecologic Cancer Predispositions in its entirety at http://www.sgo.org.
