  • Family Oncologic Risk Consultation

    Family Oncologic Risk Consultation

     

    The Family Oncologic Risk Consultation is provided by specialists in Medical Genetics.

    This consultation is intended for patients or relatives of patients with cancer in early stages, aiming to evaluate the individual risk resulting from family history, identify the rare cases that justify additional genetic examination and determine the surveillance plan adequate to the determined level of risk.

    When several members of a family have the same type of cancer, it is natural to value the genetic factors, since the family history may reflect the presence of a genetic mutation in the family, determining a high risk for one or more types of cancer. It can also denote a familial predisposition for a certain cancer, related with both genetic and environmental factors.

    For instance, in about 25% of colorectal cancer cases, family history suggests a genetic contribution and/or environmental factors common to the family members. And in about 5% of the cases, increased susceptibility is determined by the presence of mutations in predisponent genes.

    Family history evaluation enables to estimate the individual empirical risk for developing this type of cancer. Individuals with higher risk are recommended for earlier and/or more intensive surveillance than the general population. In certain situations, specific genetic studies are also recommended.

    To request a consultation, visit www.hospitaldaluz.pt/lisboa, select the Medical Genetics specialty, and include the text “Family Oncologic Risk Consultation” in the observations field of the appointment request form.
